Cancer Research UK is holding a one-day virtual 5k event next month in lieu of its usual Race to Life series of events, while Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity has also announced that its RBC Race for the Kids will return as a virtual fun run this Autumn.Cancer Research UK’s A Very 2020 Race for Life will take place on 26 September, following the cancellation of the mass Race for Life event series due to the pandemic. It asks people to complete their own 5k in local parks or neighbourhoods, either by themselves or in socially distanced small groups.A live stream will be hosted on the Race for Life Facebook page from 9.30am on 26 September, with a warm up routine followed by a minute’s silence to remember family and friends who are no longer here or currently undergoing treatment.Throughout the broadcast, people affected by cancer will share their story to highlight the importance of fundraising for research with opportunities to donate throughout. Participants can then choose to set off on their 5k after the live event or any time over that weekend or complete it any at point throughout September.Cancer Research UK has said that it expects to see a 30% decline in fundraising income this year (£160m) due to the pandemic. The charity has already been forced to make £44m of cuts to research spend this year and will need to reduce the amount of research it funds annually. Currently this is about £400m a year, but will gradually reduce, over the next four to five years, to around £250m a year – around £150m lower than today.Sarah Pickersgill, head of Race for Life Marketing said:“Over the last few months it might have felt at times like our lives were on hold but one thing that hasn’t stopped throughout the pandemic is cancer. We must continue to make progress for people affected by cancer, who have never needed us more. To do this we need the public’s help and by joining us on 26 September for a Very 2020 Race for Life and running, jogging or walking a 5k in local parks or neighbourhoods, people across the UK can make a real difference. Whether raising £10 or £100, every pound will help. Just have fun and stay safe. COVID-19 has paused vital research, but with the public’s help we can get back on track and continue our vital work to save more lives.”For the first ever virtual RBC Race for the Kids, GOSH Charity is asking participants to take on their own ‘race’ distance over a weekend of celebration on 17 and 18 October and raise funds. The virtual event is open to supporters of all ages and abilities, with participants encouraged to choose somewhere in the local neighbourhood, such as a park or a garden and ‘race’ their distance, their way.The event is part of the first RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids, created by Royal Bank of Canada, and which will bring together for the first time tens of thousands of participants to support 36 children’s and youth charities in 16 countries across this weekend, enabling anyone to take part wherever they are in the world. GOSH Charity is to the UK charity beneficiary, with the money raised going towards funding the hospital’s most urgent needs.From 14 September, participants will be able to sign up for free at rbcraceforthekids.com, select their city and associated charity and choose their preferred race distance to complete during the weekend of the 17 and 18 October. The virtual race will have support and integration with most running apps and all participants will receive digital medals and rewards.Dave Thomas, CEO of RBC Europe Ltd, said: Advertisement Melanie May | 20 August 2020 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 “Royal Bank of Canada have partnered with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity for over a decade, raising around £2 million through RBC Race for the Kids to help some of the most critically ill children in the UK. Last year more than 2,000 employees, friends and family members took part in the RBC Race for the Kids at Hyde Park to raise funds for the construction of RBC House, family accommodation at the hospital and we are determined to not let the current situation bring our decade-long run to an end so we hope the public will join RBC and the incredible people at GOSH in our first virtual, and biggest ever, global race.” 518 total views, 2 views today Race for Life & RBC Race for the Kids go virtual for 2020 519 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Tagged with: fundraising events About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

iStock(MONROE, Mich.) — A missing 2-year-old girl was found alive and healthy Tuesday morning after she spent the night lost in the woods while on a family camping trip in northern Michigan, authorities said.Gabriella Roselynn Vitale was reunited with her mother and taken to a hospital to be evaluated, but first responders say she appears to be in good shape, according to Michigan State Police.Gabriella was reported missing on Monday, launching an urgent search. Gabriella’s family had told authorities that they had been camping in a wooded area for a few days and were getting ready to leave Monday morning when they noticed that the toddler was gone.On Tuesday morning, more than 24 hours after she disappeared, Gabriella walked to a home between a quarter mile and a half mile away from the command center, said police.A resident at the home had been contacted by authorities earlier so she knew Gabriella was missing, said police.This house was out of the zone that had been searched so far, police said.Gabriella was missing her bottoms and her shoes, but seemed relatively unfazed for a 2-year-old who had been missing in the woods overnight, said police.Early into the search, the girl’s pink jacket was found several hundred yards away from where she went missing, police said.Over 50 searchers and 10 canines were looking for the little girl Tuesday morning before police announced that she had been found.The family says they live in the Monroe, Michigan, area, which is about 200 miles south of where they were camping.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

maroke/iStock(CHICAGO) — Negotiations are resuming in the Chicago teachers’ strike after the Chicago Teachers Union voted to accept a tentative deal with the city but continued striking over makeup days for the time they spent on the picket line.After 10 days striking, the union requested that the school system schedule makeup days for time lost during the strike, but Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has rejected the request. As a result, classes remained canceled again on Thursday.In a press conference, Lightfoot lambasted the union, accusing Sharkey of constantly moving “goal posts” in making a deal to end the strike. Lightfoot described the union’s demands as an ultimatum.“What we have is a take it or leave it demand — that’s not a starter for a conversation,” she said.Lightfoot said the city would “not pay teachers for striking,” adding that shortening students’ holiday vacation or summer vacation to make up for the strike days are not options because families had already planned their lives around the planned school year.“We believe this is an agreement that will produce real, lasting benefits in our schools. It’s a contract we can believe in. It has meaningful improvements in class size, in staffing and in a number of other features which we believe will help transform public schools in Chicago,” union president Jesse Sharkey said after announcing the agreement Wednesday night.“There’s one issue, however, that’s an important issue,” he said. “Our union does not have a return-to-work agreement. Our delegates told us in no uncertain terms they were not going back to work unless there was a provision made for making up the instructional days that have been lost over the last ten days. Our members want to return to work. Everyone was clear about that. However, the mayor of the city of Chicago has said that we will not be able to make up lost instructional days.”“Not once during that 3 1/2 hour meeting did they raise compensation for strike days — not once. The issue never came up,” Lightfoot said in response. “I’ve been clear from day one that CPS would not make up any strike days. And at this late hour, we are not adding any new issues.”Despite the mayor’s insistence, Illinois state law says that after nine days, district students are required to make those days up in school, according to Chicago ABC station WLS. Under those rules, at least two days of school will be added to the end of the year based on how long the strike has gone on to this point.Teachers are not paid for lost days that are not made up.The Chicago Teachers Union represents the city’s 25,000 teachers and educational support staff. The strike, in the nation’s third-largest school district, has kept more than 360,000 students out of school. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
2 in 5 respondents had experienced an incident in the year preceding the survey, committed by someone they did not live with, because they were LGBT However, more than nine in ten said they did not report it, often saying that ‘it happens all the time’ 2 percent of respondents had undergone conversion or reparative therapy in an attempt to ‘cure’ them of being LGBT, and a further 5% had been offered it taking further action on LGBT hate crime – improving the recording and reporting of, and police response to, hate crime appointing a national LGBT health adviser to provide leadership on reducing the health inequalities that LGBT people face re-tendering NHS England’s adult gender identity services under an improved specification bringing forward proposals to end the practice of conversion therapy in the UK extending the anti-homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying programme in schools SafetyEven more concerning are the results regarding safety, with IntroductionI am delighted to be here today, and sharing with you another milestone in promoting equality for LGBT people in the UK.I would first like to start by reflecting on what this government has done in recent years to promote the rights of LGBT people in the UK, before talking through the national LGBT survey results and the LGBT action plan.What we have doneThis government is committed to making the UK a country that works for everyone. We have made great strides in recent years to support LGBT people, who make a vital contribution to our culture and to our economy.We are proud to have introduced marriage for same-sex couples in 2013 and ‘Turing Law’ last year, finally pardoning men convicted of historic consensual sexual offences. We have also established a £3 million programme which is running from 2016 to 2019 to prevent and tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools. Finally, we committed to consult on the Gender Recognition Act, making the process less intrusive and bureaucratic for trans people. But we know that there is more to do.This is why we have launched the national LGBT survey last year, to gather more information and evidence about the experiences of LGBT people in the UK, so this government can focus on the specific areas that will improve the lives of LGBT people.Participation to the LGBT surveyThe survey response was unprecedented – over 108,000 people participated, making it the largest national survey of LGBT people in the world to date.This is a great achievement and I would like to thank all of you and the LGBT sector today, for spreading the word and making the participation to the survey successful. As a result, we have a good assessment of the challenges still facing LGBT in the UK, and a clear mandate to act on.LGBT survey resultsThe survey focused on the experiences of LGBT people in the areas of safety, health, education and the workplace.There were some positive findings from the survey – respondents were generally positive about the UK’s record on LGBT rights and most respondents felt comfortable being LGBT in the UK. However, therewere some results that really concerned us.Being LGBT in the UKFor example, the findings show that some people found that being LGBT in the UK was not easy. In particular, HealthIn the area of health, findings are also striking: We will allocate £4.5 million worth of funding to deliver this Action Plan commitments by then end of this Parliament.To help us guide and deliver this plan, we will also establish a new LGBT Advisory Panel and provide annual progress updates to the Women and Equalities Select Committee, so we can keep track on progress made.ConclusionWe are very committed to addressing the barriers to equality that LGBT people still face in daily life and ensuring that Britain is a country that works for everyone, whatever your sexual orientation or gender identity.Today is a great opportunity for us all to reflect on the challenges LGBT people are still facing and establish how we can and must continue to work together to overcome them. I am sure there will be some great discussions this morning.I am counting on your engagement to help drive change in the UK and improve the lives of LGBT people, so the UK is a country where everyone can achieve their full potential, regardless of who they are. Thank you. only 3% of respondents said they had discussed sexual orientation and gender identity at school, be that during lessons, in assemblies or elsewhere where discussed, only 9% said that the discussions had prepared them well for later life as an LGBT person over 12,000 respondents to the survey who were in education in 2016-2017 experienced at least one negative incident during that time due to being or thought to be LGBT. 9 percent of negative incidents experienced at school, such as disclosure of being LGBT without permission, were perpetrated by teachers EducationWe also have to do more in education, as: LGBT people are less satisfied with their life than the general UK population more than two in three LGBT people say they avoid holding hands with a same-sex partner in public spaces for fear of a negative reaction from others 70 percent of respondents with a minority sexual orientation said they avoided being open about their sexual orientation for fear of a negative reaction from others 67 percent of trans respondents said they avoided being open about their gender identity for fear of a negative reaction from others 23 percent of survey respondents who had a paid job in the 12 months preceding the survey had experienced a negative or mixed reaction from others in the workplace due to being or thought to be LGBT WorkplaceFinally, in relation to the workplace, This is unacceptable. Clearly, we have more to do.LGBT Action PlanThis is why we are publishing a comprehensive LGBT Action Plan that sets out what steps the government will take in response to the survey findings.The Action Plan looks across the board at government services and include over 70 commitments to improve the lives of LGBT people and their access to services. Some of the key actions that we will be taking include: only 28% of LGBT people who have accessed or tried to access mental health services said it was easy to access these services 2 in 5 trans respondents had a negative experience due to their gender identity, when accessing health services in the 12 months preceding the survey 80 percent of trans respondents who had tried to access specialised gender identity services said it had not been easy to access them. 68% of these said it was because the waiting lists were too long
