Following on from the successes of past Give a Gift 5k run and walks, this fundraising event is set to return to Roundhay Park later this year as running shoes are once again dusted off for charity.
Over £8,000 has been raised from the event over the past few years, with all funds going towards local causes - the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund at Leeds General Infirmary and Martin House Children’s Hospice.
This year, whether you are an avid runner, or just want to enjoy a stroll around the picturesque park, the Give a Gift team are challenging all abilities to come down and enjoy an action packed day of fundraising.
The Give A Gift Team are really looking forward to seeing our amazing fundraisers challenge themselves once again for local causes with the run open to people of every age and ability. This is a great opportunity to have a fantastic day out with the whole family, and help out charities who need our support.”
As with previous years, fun activities will once again be put on for children on the day whilst free refreshments and goodie bags will greet walkers, joggers and runners as they take a step towards helping the charities.
Former England Rugby international, Ikram Butt, said it is a great initiative to join in with after taking part previously.
“I did the run a couple of years ago and it was a great day where hundreds of people came out to join in with the fundraising efforts,” he said.
“I hope this year will be even bigger and better than that and look forward to another great day at Roundhay Park.”
