Running in the Leeds 10k on behalf of the Leeds Children’s Charity

A team of 22 runners and joggers took part in the Leeds 10k run on Sunday 19 June 2011 on behalf of the Leeds Children’s Charity

The morning was very wet and all those taking part bravely faced the elements as they lined up to start the run.  However, undaunted and determined to complete the route, everyone got round the route in an amazing time and our congratulations go to all those who took part to raise money for the charity. 

To date, £5615 has been raised for the purpose of the charity and this money will be used to provide free residential short breaks/respite for 28 disadvantaged children aged 7 to 11 years. 

Verlie McCann, Chairman of the charity, said that all the trustees were extremely grateful for the time and effort that the runners had given to take part in the Leeds 10k, especially in such poor weather conditions”.

Thank you to everyone who took part and for helping even more children to have a holiday by the sea.
