5K Fun Run Sunday 9th July 2017 – Dunstable Downs 10am

 

Local roofing company G J Smith Roofing will be running in the Kids in Action 5k Fun Run in July.

 

Kids in Action is a charity for Children with special needs with a strong focus on positively transforming young people’s lives and the lives of their families.

 

Since 1996, they have provided opportunities and support to children, young people and young adults with disabilities, life changing conditions and learning difficulties in the UK.

 

From their centre in Dunstable they run a variety of clubs, as well as daily, weekly and school holiday activities, from social and sporting events, to holidays and day trips.  Kids in Action are always striving to come up with new ideas and activities to change and enrich the lives of the young people that attend their centre.

 

G J Smith Roofing have been supporting Kids in Action for nearly 10 years and will have 14 Employees taking part in the 5k Fun Run.  Gary Smith had a Kidney transplant in December 2016, donated to him by David who also works at G J Smith Roofing.  As a consequence of this and both with a positive and speedy recovery behind them, they have decided to do something for this very worthwhile Local charity.

 

Gary and David are hoping the day turns out to be a fun team building day, whilst also raising money for Kids in Action. Tracey from Kids in Action has said “There are approx. 100 people running on the Dunstable downs and we are all looking forward to it”.

 

The run is as 10am on the Dunstable Downs, there will be a picnic after the run, and we would welcome people to come along to show support for this very worthy cause – the more the merrier!
