25 people gave up their usual day of rest, a Sunday, to raise £4000 for the Joseph Salmon Trust in 2013. You can do the same in 2014. Run, jog, walk or crawl 10km in Manchester for not only a great cause but for that warm fuzzy feeling inside. Abilities range from various ages to sporting strengths. Don’t be shy, anyone can take part.
One runner of 2013 is a dedicated denim designer with a passion to. Another person is a swimmer and had never really ran before. She took up the challenge and made it to the end of the race in under an hour. She didn’t care even if she had to crawl over the finish line and did it for Joseph and the families that the wonderful charity support.
Doing the 10km is fun and finishing it may seem like wishful thinking at times but it can make you feel healthier. Whatever gets your motivational juices flowing, you gain a great sense of accomplishment not just for yourself as an individual but for the charity and the goodness it brings to struggling bereaved families.
The event is well run… get it…well run… with bands playing music all round the course. You get a glimpse of elite athletes racing to win their wave as well as entertained by the abundance of people dressed up as daft things. 2013 saw a snail finish the run in good time. So, which ever reason you use to do it, get signed up with the Joseph Salmon Trust, dust off your trainers and get raising invaluable funding for this amazing charity.
