History of Bee Active Bee Healthy Bee Happy Week

The Running Bee Foundation was established in memory of ‘Mo Done,’ a true Salfordian who supported many of Manchester’s charitable foundations and was instrumental in the advancement of tour operator Sports Tours International. The company is the founder and primary supporter of the Running Bee Foundation.

All proceeds generated by Sports Tours International’s U.K. running events will be donated to The Running Bee Foundation. These funds are then reinvested into the communities where the events are held. It is the mission of the Running Bee Foundation to promote the fitness and well-being of local citizens, as well as to contribute to the fight against childhood obesity. Specifically, it accomplishes this by making grant funds accessible to community organizations and regional charities in the towns and cities where events are held.

By participating in Running Bee Foundation events, people can support health and wellness projects, highlight the benefits of living an active lifestyle, and contribute to the fight against juvenile obesity. The winners of each marathon will earn prize money in the form of a charitable donation. Winners can select a charitable organization to which they would like to donate.
