John, a Care Practitioner from one of our homes took part in a very warm 10k race this Sunday at Market Drayton dressed in a gingerbread man costume.
John says he has “been the official back marker for the Market Drayton 10k for the last 5 years and runs for a different charity each year”. John ran for Bryn Melyn Care’s chosen charity, which this year is the Little Rascals Foundation; a charity based in Shrewsbury who support children with disabilities and their families.
John informs that he is “on the committee for the race and helps each year with the setup. Yesterday’s race saw record numbers of people both attend and finish the race”. As the back marker, John was last to complete, finishing in 1 hour 57 minutes and raising £130!! Huge well done John!
If you would like to find out more about the fantastic work the Little Rascals Foundation do, or would like to make a donation, please visit their website at www.littlerascalsfoundation.com/.
We look forward to seeing more of John’s great costumes in future races.
