I am so proud of the extra work our franchisees put in to assist charities in their locations. Yesterday, Karina warmed up the crowd for The Race for Life fundraising event in Shrewsbury.
We are all aware of the great work carried out by Cancer Research UK and the progress they have made to date. I was very pleased to hear that Karina was assisting with the fundraising for more research in to Cancer as I lost my friend from Breast Cancer last year, she was only 37 years old and mum to two young children, it was a very sad time for her, and her family and friends.
Yesterday in Shrewsbury two thousand women and children dressed in pink met to walk, run or jog the 5K ‘Race for Life’. The Race for Life raises money for Cancer Research UK and takes place very year at hundreds of locations all over the UK. Today was Shrewsbury’s turn. Karina Davies, who runs the LazyTown Sports Club in Shrewsbury took the lead for the warm-up activity getting everyone ready for the race. She was joined on stage by 5 amazing members of the LazyTown Sports Club from Minsterley Primary School. The five children aged 5-8 attend the afterschool club every week and volunteered themselves for the event. Karina reports ‘my volunteers were brilliant, it was such an honour to be able to share the stage with them, I hope they are feeling very proud of themselves’ The fifteen minute warm-up saw a sea of pink crowds moving to the Sports Club favourites routines including the Pirate warmup of course. Watch this space to see the photo’s from the event, and hopefully we’ll get to see some video footage too.
Well done Karina, the feedback I have received has been great.
