Health Trainers and Lighten Up complete 5k fun run

30th July 2012

Well done to everyone who took part in the first ever Gateway Fun Run/Walk. We had over 60 people join us. Most had come through the Health Trainer and Lighten Up service, volunteers came from the Cardio-Rehab programme too. The sun shone and everyone completed, at their own pace. Many people had been on a life-changing journey to get to this point, and for others the journey was just beginning.
