Ben Johnson - Forget me not foundation

Sponsored Fun Run (or Walk)

About "Ben's Day"

During February of 2008 a small group of family and friends discussed how to best remember Ben, raise awareness of Leukaemia and raise money for charity. It was decided that a sponsored run or walk, to celebrate Ben and three of his friends' nonstop run to Bluewater and back from our house in Cross Lane East was the best way forward.

"Ben's Day" is now an annual event, held on a Sunday in May, and we believe it is the largest charity event of its kind in Gravesend. Set up for both walkers and runners, participants can choose a distance of their choice of up to 10 km max.
