A few weeks ago, we announced our support for Filling in the Blanks and some of the fundraising ideas we had planned this year. One of these was their Virtual 5K – a sponsored run/walk raising money to help restock the charity’s inventory. These valuable funds allow Filling in the Blanks’ to continue providing much-needed resources that families can count on.
On April 25th, we took part in the event, running and cycling a combined 174km (or 108 miles). We also managed to exceed our initial fundraising target by $100.
Here are just a few of snaps of our treks:
Nicki, our Events Officer, took a walk around Castle Ashby in Northamptonshire and captured some great shots of the English countryside.
Jo, our Curriculum Manager, completed her 5K with her four-legged friend.
Finally, John and Ann Crick left us all in the dust with their impressive 51-mile bike ride around Northamptonshire (with a quick pit stop for coffee and cake).
Keep an eye on our social media pages for more information about our fundraising efforts.
