Foundation | Bluebirds raise over £3,000 to support our communities
On Sunday 27th March, a group of Cardiff City supporters ran over 13 miles in the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise vital funds for Cardiff City FC Foundation.
The Foundation would like to offer a huge thank you to everyone who signed up to represent them, and are grateful for your support.

So far, the runners have raised a remarkable £3,100 that will go towards supporting children, young people and families across South Wales achieve their full potential.
This was the first time that Cardiff City’s official mascot Bartley Bluebird ran on behalf of the Foundation, completing the race in just over two and a half hours.
