My story

[p][b]Birmingham and Warwickshire locality - Couch to 5K Parkrun challenge. [/b](Raising money for YouCan)[/p][p] Hi all,[/p][p] We are a dedicated bunch of front line housing professionals who spend our days coaching our customers to help them achieve whatever their goals are in life. [/p][p] [b]My team are brilliant at what they do, however they are not all runners![/b] [/p][p] They [b]are [/b]all up for a challenge though. So when I shared my passion for running with them, and more importantly parkrun, I am pleased to say they rose to my challenge. [/p][p] We’ll be taking on Stratford parkrun at 9.30 am on 22 September 2018 to raise as much as we can for YouCan. [/p][p] YouCan offers grants of up to £300 to help kick-start community based projects designed to bring people and neighbourhoods together. The grants have funded things such as community gardening projects, craft clubs and support groups for new parents. [/p][p] For those of you unaware, parkrun is a free 5K (3.1miles) timed running event run by volunteers. With hundreds of events all over the world and we chose Stratford as it is the centre of where we are based in Warwickshire.[/p][p] Of the 15 or so of us who will complete the challenge most have never run before, so I will be arranging coaching sessions before the event, to ensure we all get around the course as a team on the day.[/p][p] If you like the idea of seeing others "huff and puff" as we attempt to get around the three miles or so in one piece, please give generously on the attached link. [/p][p] Photos of the [b]"Fun" [/b]we all had on the day will be provided after the event. [/p][p] Thanks for reading and please click on the link below to donate to this worthwhile cause. [/p][p] Steve Osmond[/p][p] Locality Manager / parkrunner[/p][p] Bromford. [/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
