The medals have arrived everyting is in plce for Sunday’s inaugural Inspired 2 Run Fun Run.
Representatives from Inspired Youth and Break Charity spoke to students from North Walsham Manor School Road Junior School this week about the planned event. Organiser Rob Whitwood, from Inspired Youth, bought along a sample of some of the medals that will be used on the day for the students to see.
He said: “It was great to talk to such a large group about the work Inspired Youth already does with the school supporting our cookie project, and explain how the idea of the fun run got started. When I’ve been training over the last nine months, my circuit round town takes me pastd the school, so it has been nice working up to this point.”
Rob was joined by senior fundraising officer Danielle Gravestock (pictured), from Break Charity. She explained to the students about the work that she does in raising money for Break and the important services Break provides to young people and families in the region. She said: “Thank you for inviting Break to be a part of this and allowing us the opportunity to speak to the brilliant pupils at North Walsham Junior School today. Sunday will be amazing.”
The fun run is taking place this Sunday, May 6, with opportunities for both young and old to take part. A short circuit is being created for the young runners, and a 5k circuit for the adults. Runners can participate on their own or as part of a relay team, if covering the 5k distance is too much of a challenge.
“I’m really hoping this can be the start of an amazing project to help the health and wellbeing of local people, as well as support these two organisations that work with thousands of young people every year. It’s inspired me to run, I hope it does the same for others,” said Rob.
