For the third time, UK Friends of Schneider Children’s Hopsital participated in this years Maccabi GB Community Fun Run on Sunday 21st June. The event took place at the fantastic Allainz Park, a world class sports stadium in the heart of northwest London.
Throughout the morning, our 34 runners took part in either a 1km, 5km or 10km race. Our runners and walkers spanned three generations and various abilities, from the youngest participants who crossed the finish line holding their parents or grandparents’ hands, to those who trained specifically to take part in the day.
The event was buzzing from start to finish, from the stadium running track out onto the route, to the charity fair, and outside into the Fun Zone where there were various activities for children of all ages. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding day for everyone involved. It was the perfect way for friends and families to get together, be active and raise money for Schneider.
Even the rainy British weather wasn’t going to stop us!
