FIPÂ Fun Run to raise money for Pharmacist Support
Pharmacist Support is partnering with the International Pharmacy Federation (FIP) for its annual fun run onÂ Tuesday 4 September 2018 in Glasgow.
The 5km fun run has been a popular social event at the congress for the past seven years - an event promoting healthy lifestyle, and an alternative networking opportunity for conference delegates. For the first time, this yearâ€™s event will also raise funds for Pharmacist Support and help those in the profession facing a range of challenging situations.
With limited places, conference attendees are asked to register their interest in advance. A 10 Euro donation for the FIPÂ Foundation which helps the development of programmes to advance the pharmacy profession, is required to secure a place.
All runners, joggers and walkers are being encouraged to ask friends and colleagues to sponsor their efforts. Donations can be made through the generalÂ FIPÂ fun run Justgiving page:Â https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fip-fun-run.
Alternatively participants can set up their own personal fundraising pages here:https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/GoGreen4PS2018. All money raised will benefit Pharmacist Support and help fund the invaluable services that they provide to the pharmacy community.
Chief Executive of Pharmacist Support Diane Leicester-Hallam said: â€œWe are really excited to be involved with theÂ FIP Fun Run this year. It not only ties in with the charityâ€™s wellbeing focus, it also kick starts our annual fundraising campaign #GoGreen4PS.
"We hope that all participants, spectators and conference attendees will get involved by wearing something green and of course donating and helping raise lots of â€œgreenâ€ cash for the charity."
