For the second time, UK Friends of Schneider Children’s Hopsital participated in this years Maccabi GB Community Fun Run on Sunday 22nd June. This year, the event took place at the fantastic Allainz Park, a world class sports stadium in the heart of northwest London.
Throughout the morning, our 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. Everyone who took part crossed the finish line to a rapturous applause and received their official Maccabi GB Community Fun Run medal.
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 people of all ages to raise money and support the amazing work that Schneider Children’s Hospital does.
