ENRICHING LIVES THROUGH CRICKET

WELCOME TO RUNS4FUNDS

Runs4Funds is a fundraising initiative founded by Northamptonshire Steelbacks all-rounder, Steven Crook, that was born following an emotional meeting with two inspirational parents of Northampton-born, Lewis Herbert. Lewis and his family’s story was covered in the local newspaper, where they spoke of their efforts to recruit fundraisers to help raise enough money to provide much-needed facilities and equipment for 12 year old LGS-sufferer, Lewis.
Throughout the 2015 season, Steven supported the A Life For Lewis Appeal by helping raise nearly £5,000 towards a much needed sensory garden for Lewis to enjoy.

We had a brilliant 2016, raising just shy of £25,000 for Thomas’s Fund. And now, in 2017, we’re really proud to be supporting Alfe’s Cause to continue our association with some brilliant Northamptonshire charities.

What is Alfe's Cause?

Helping Families
ACROSS NORTHANTS.

Alfe’s Cause is a Northamptonshire charity that provide support for families of children who have been affected by cancer and other long term illnesses by arranging and funding monthly activity meetings, offering financial relief as well as providing essential emotional support through what are very difficult times.

In September 2009, Alfe was diagnosed with B cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and spent the next 8 months receiving chemotherapy to treat the cancerous tumour. Alfe has now made a full recovery and is determined help other children and families that are going through or have been through similar experiences. All money raised by Runs4Funds during 2017 will go directly to assist the incredible work Alfe’s Cause do.
