Length of run or walk:

The JoJo Charity Buggy Fun Run is designed to be suitable for all levels of fitness. With advice from the Battersea Park Events Team we have created a course through the park which involves a 2.5km circuit. Runners or walkers may target themselves to cover one circuit of 2.5km, two, three or even four circuits making a total run of 10km. There is no pressure to take on more than you feel is right for your current level of fitness, but this system leaves you the option of setting yourself a higher target for the next JoJo Charity Buggy Fun Run in May 2010!

Why take part:

This Buggy Fun Run will be more than just a good excuse for setting yourself a target time in which to get fit. After your run or walk, stay around and enjoy the music and baby fair. Bring a picnic rug and stay in the park for lunch with friends and family. Taking part and raising sponsorship will make all the difference to less advantaged parents, babies and children.

Other attractions:

Even if you decide not to take part in the Buggy Fun Run, join us in the park and take advantage of the entertainment, music and catering facilities. Bring a picnic and enjoy the atmosphere in the company of like minded parents, babies and toddlers.

Taking part without a buggy:

If on the day your baby is unwell and you wish to continue to take part without your buggy you may. We regret that for safety reasons we can not accept children on bikes or scooters.

Taking part with a Buggy Board or other type of toddler platform:

We welcome entrants who have Buggy Boards or similar platforms for toddlers to stand on. However, for safety reasons these entrants must walk the circuit(s). 

Get sponsorship for Nema (our charity working to relieve child poverty in Africa) or your own charity:

In your Entry Pack you will receive a Sponsorship Form. Raising sponsorship will really make a difference to Nema, this small charity where every penny you raise will go towards funding projects to help babies and children on the ground in Northern Mozambique, where infant mortality runs at 30%. Alternatively you may raise money for a local charity of your choice.

NB: Please understand that whilst JoJo Maman Bébé is the organizer of this event, every penny raised through sponsorship or donations will go directly to our charity Nema or the charity of your choice. For more information on our involvement with Nema please see the our Charity Section of the website and read Kate’s diary, one of the JoJo employees seconded to Nema earlier this year.
