Pharmacist Support is partnering with the International Pharmacy Federation (FIP) for its annual fun run on 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 year’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 FIP 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 general FIP fun run Justgiving page: 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: “We are really excited to be involved with the FIP Fun Run this year. It not only ties in with the charity’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 “green” cash for the charity."
