This year we’re holding a Fun Run with a difference – a Free Community Fun Day for all the family!
GATEWAY FUN RUN/WALK AND COMMUNITY FUN DAY
DATE: Saturday 23rd July 2016
TIME: 10:30am – 13:00pm (but please arrive early to register and warm up)
LOCATION: The Bandstand, Cannon Hill Park, B13 8RD
We’re still inviting people to run or walk the 5km route, with the support of our Health Trainers, but this year there will be a lot more activities on offer too.
Why are we changing the focus of the day?
All of Gateway’s services (Health Trainers, Lighten Up, Gateway Healthy Futures, Pre Diabetes and the Pregnancy Outreach Worker Service) have an impact on the whole family, and their work isn’t just about healthy eating and exercise – it’s about leading a happier life. A lot of the people we work with are looking for more reasons to get out and about and meet more people, so we’re hoping that a Community Fun Day will give everyone that opportunity.
As well as the fun warm-ups and the 5km run (or walk, or stroll…) we’ll have a snack bar serving healthy snacks and refreshments, and some new activities: children’s races and games, story-telling from our very own Jane, and face painting by Sara. Of course, the activities are aimed at kids, but adults are very welcome to join in too!
We hope that a shared day out will be fun for everyone, and we look forward to seeing some new faces, as well as those of you who enjoy this day out every year. Everyone is welcome, and you don’t have to be a client of Gateway to get on board. Just give us a ring on 0121 456 7820 to register your interest and get your name down for a free snack bag!
Whether you want to beat your personal best at the 5km, find out more about our services, or just meet some new people and maybe make a few friends in an informal atmosphere, we’d love to see you.
