It's Fun To Run

The Family Run was the perfect opportunity for Ellie and her little brother to get involved. And have some fun while they raised money for a good cause.

The children absolutely loved the event, it's a great way for the whole family to get involved in fundraising and fitness.

It's a run with such a buzzing atmosphere and I am so glad that the kids were able to be a part of it.

My daughter is such an active girl and she loved taking part. I just knew it was something that she would love to get involved in.
