On May the 11th all eyes (well at least all eyes in Gerrard’s Cross) will be on the swathes of participants running, jogging, walking and hopping their way around this year’s Gerrards Cross Fun Run. The event is run every two years and this is the fourth event we have not only taken part in (it’s worth noting we won the team award in 2008… despite me being a part of it) but we have also been involved in sponsoring. The Fun Run is not only a great demonstration of Community Spirit but also does sterling work for local charity.
This years beneficiaries are Kids in Sport and Home Start. I’d encourage all of you to take a look at the great work these charities do by visiting their websites.
It definitely makes the decision to sponsor and support these events worthwhile knowing that money being raised is going to such excellent causes.
Rumour has it that Fairweather Insurance will be putting out a reasonably strong team this year but sadly our quickest runner – Cracker the office dog won’t be taking part. He says it is in order to allow the other competitors a chance.
Even if you are not participating in the event why not come and show your support and join in the fun. For more information please visit the fun run website. www.gxfunrun.org.uk there is still time to register.
