Running the Brighton Marathon for education charity CVQO

The Brighton Marathon 2013

A team consisting of myself, A Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Eleven Army Cadet Force (ACF) Adult Volunteers from across the South East have given up their own time and are taking part in CVQO’s first major sports sponsorship initiative – the Brighton Marathon 2013.

Recently, Team CVQO met for the first time at South East Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association headquarters in Aldershot, Hampshire, where the team met up with (Cadet Vocational Qualification Organisation) CVQO Fundraiser Jeanne Peterson. Team CVQO was then briefed on what to expect from the 26.2 mile run in April, and how to make the most out of their fundraising.

The current team consists of instructors from the ACF in Berkshire, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire and IOW. All of the runners are keen to overcome their own personal challenges, and raise money to offer more educational opportunities to young people with CVQO’s qualifications.

CVQO provides opportunities for young people and volunteering adults from all three services to improve their prospects in education and work through vocational qualifications. Set up in 2001, the charity is now extending this offering from the MOD uniformed Cadet movement to other youth organisations like St John Ambulance, the Prince’s Trust, Police Cadets, Fire Service and others outside the UK.
