Simplyhealth Great North Mini & Junior Run

Wow, what a fab weekend we had at the Quayside as 300 children sported their Heel & Toe Charity T. Shirts, in preparation for the Mini & Junior run.

Some of our very own children took part in the wheelchair race including; James, Elijah and William. William came 3rd place with his dad and fellow Trustee – Mark! We were so excited for them.


Half Marathon Run (Sunday)

Sunday was another exciting day as our team headed down to South Shields Finish Line to set up our charity tent, in the charity village.

welcoming our hard working runners is so important, so we made sure we stocked up on snacks, drinks and even brought our Physiotherapists and Physio’s from Therapy Direct Healthcare to massage those weary legs.

All 160 runners seemed to enjoy the experience as especially liked the boost at the 5 mile mark where our Barmy Army were cheering with jelly babies and water.

We even had our charity mascot there @Lennonminisausage.

Thank you to everyone who took part, volunteered their time and services.

Thank you to all the local stores who donated provisions for our runners. Thank you to our t shirt and vest sponsors Olleco, SRL Traffic Systems Ltd.
