Chirnside Chasers are undertaking a 24 hour sponsored charity run in aid of EVEolution, from 2pm Saturday 29th August 2015 till 2pm Sunday 30th August 2015, ending up at the Allanton Inn for BBQ and fun.

EVEolution has been set up after a local little girl Eve McGonicle was diagnosed with Ependymoma, a rare and life-threatening brain tumour. EVEolution aims to help the staff and patients of Edinburgh’s Sick Kids Ward 7 to improve facilities on the ward to allow children fighting this disease and their families find some sort of comfort and solace throughout what is a stressful time. If anyone is interested in taking part we would be asking you to run either 15mins, 30mins or an 1hour, it is time based not distance based. A route has been planned and some stretches will be suitable for our younger Chasers if they along with an adult would like to participate.

If you would like to participate and help us raise funds for such a worthy cause please either email Nichola Stewart at, or message Chirnside Chasers through Facebook, with times between 2pm Sat -2pm Sun you would be available  to run at and how long you think could run for. You can run more than once.

Once we have all the details we will create a timetable which we will share with more details of what is happening on the day and where to meet etc. This will allow us to ensure we have runners running for the whole 24 hour period. Sponsor forms will be distributed very soon.
