Run to Support Action for Elders

Take part in Swansea or Cardiff runs and raise money to help older people.

Action For Elders are looking for runners of all ages to raise money to help us run our vital Balanced Lives programmes for older people.

This year we celebrate our Tenth Anniversary. During our first decade we turned around the lives of 1000s of older people, but we would like to do much more…

Take part in these two amazing events and do something incredible for older people…

Why Run for Action For Elders

Ageing is the biggest killer of the human race. Healthy ageing should be our number one priority. By 2030 one in six people in the world will be aged 60 or over. Our Balanced Lives programmes ensure that all physical, mental and social needs are met. With donations and support from you, we can help people enjoy a healthy, longer later life.
“Having the offer of support gave me new found confidence,”

Balanced Lives Participant

Our Balanced Lives Programmes

Our programmes are a complete health and wellbeing package for the older community. We give people the tools to take care of their own health in a safe and friendly environment, both outdoors, indoors or online. We offer a wide range of exercise, social and mental wellbeing programmes.

Our Promise

In addition to the race packs, every entrant will received Action For Elders own Starter Pack: including tea shirt, mug and pen. We offer complete support to help to register and you will be featured in the Action For Elders Hall of Fame section on our website.
