EN8 2km Family Fun-Run for CHEXS – 29.09.19

By 29th September 2019 February 3rd, 2020 News, Past Events

We’re delighted that Waltham Cross joined our Hertfordshire-wide campaign to get towns active. Our local partners, the charity CHEXS, organised their first ever Your Town Get-Together 2km Run that was fun for ALL the family, despite a bit of rain…

All profits from ticket sales were donated directly to CHEXS, to support all of the fantastic work they do with children and families that you can learn more about below.

The route involved a 1KM loop, starting and finishing in Waltham Cross High Street. The feedback has been fantastic and we’re already looking forward to getting the next one in the diary to continue bringing a positive energy to Waltham Cross!
