Walk the track in Camborne and help disabled children get active
Action for Children is asking local people to run, walk or wheel their way around Carn Brea Athletics Track in Camborne to raise money for disabled young people in Cornwall.
The charity’s Travel the Track event takes place on September 21 from 10am until 3pm at Carn Brea Leisure Centre. Locals are challenged to make as many circuits of the track as they can – in any way they want!
All money raised from the event, organised by the charity in partnership with Camborne Rotary Club, will go towards its Cornwall SPACE service, which provides activity schemes for disabled children and young people throughout Cornwall.
The schemes include play sessions during the school holidays and on Saturdays, and regular youth clubs throughout the year. These activities allow local disabled young people to socialise with each other in a safe environment, while allowing their families to have a break from their caring roles.
Buy one get one free on main course and specials excludes fillet steaks and beef wellingtons

Laura-Beth Roberts, service coordinator at Action for Children’s Cornwall SPACE, said: “Travel the Track is a new event that we’re holding to encourage all people – no matter their fitness level or ability – to try out in aid of a very good cause.
“Whether you can run, walk, hop, or wheel, this event is open to all – and the more unusual the way to get around the track the better!”
Those taking part in Travel the Track can try to complete 400metres (one lap), 2000metres (five laps) or 5k (12.5 laps of the track) using any method they choose. The event will also include entertainment, including facepainting, games and a visit from Chloe the Clown.
Laura-Beth added: “Those that take part on the day will also get a special Action for Children medal to show the difference that they have made to the lives of disabled young people in Cornwall.”
Entry to Travel the Track is £2 per person for over-16s and £1 per person for under-16s or over-65s. To take part or for sponsorship forms, please contact Action for Children’s Cornwall SPACE on 01726 815 005 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
