Hackney1000 Annual event 18th Aug 2012

The Hackney1000 is an annual celebration of our community and a fundraising event, helping build a better future for some of Hackney’s kids in need. THE EVENTIt’s simple. This August 18th 2012, we’ll mark out a 1km route around Well Street Common. You join our team on  Just Giving and pledge to travel a few miles round it however you want. Run skip or dance. We’ll have plenty of great food and fun on the day to egg you on. Together we’ll showcase everything that makes our borough unlike anywhere else in the UK meeting new people and making our community stronger. Together we’ll help build a better Hackney and ensure that Hackney Quest continues to help hundreds of children stay in education and off the streets. We’ll make our community stronger and our children’s futures brighter. THE CHARITY:Hackney Quest play a key role in our community helping young people and their families by providing positive long-term support systems. Founded in 1988 Hackney Quest has provided stimulating educational and diversional activities to thousands of young people diverting them away from anti-social behaviour promoting their personal development and breaking down barriers. The charity also works with families helping to strengthen homes and build a better community. More info on how to pledge or take part over here:  http://hackney1000.com
