The 'Breakfast Run of Hope' happening in Brockwell Park in September was 'cooked up' by Catherine Weight, a South African living in London who combines her twin passions - baking and running - for an event that's "appealing and fun while raising money for a great cause". Catherine began by baking for friends' birthdays and other special occasions in return for donations to Starfish. Then, wanting to reach out to a larger group of donors than expat South African friends, she went on to organise a half-marathon and raise money for a place in the London Marathon for Starfish.
The Starfish Breakfast Run 2012 hopes to raise around £10,000 for children in South Africa.
