Charity Events ....

It is Cross country at Tandle Hill on the 15th but there is a couple of charity events taking place also - there is Watergroove Park run & run with Si at Cowm Res....

 

Brian Moore invites you to Watergroove Park run on Sat 15th ....For every finisher in the results at my 250th parkrun I will donate/split £1 evenly between Springhill Hospice and Lymphoma Action. And whilst I don't think I'll reach this number I'd best put a £250 limit on my donation.

 

Garry is widely known throughout the running community in, and I don't think this is an understatement, the whole of the North Manchester area. His wife sadly passed away earlier this year after fighting a courageous battle against Cancer. During this time she was looked after at Springhill Hospice, a place now very close to Garry's heart.

Frances, is what I call a competitor. This girl has an always positive attitude, a smile that would melt the coldest heart and a I will try my best, my hardest in everything I do. Well this year, she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Did she let this get her down? Did she feel sorry for herself .... I think we all know the answer to these questions.

Finally, to John. John was an immense man. When I first joined Rochdale Harriers, John was the person who made me feel welcome. John and his good friend, Ian Stainthorpe, were the first real people who I remember doing "parkrun touring". John loved his parkruns. Sadly John also passed away this year, he too received the same caring treatment at Springhill that Bernadette did.

 

Runathon - Cowm Res -

On Saturday 15th December, Si Hall will be running around Cowm Res.....starting at 9am and he’ll keep going as long as he can. We are asking for people to come and join him...give him somebody new and different to talk at, I mean to 😜. All YOU need to do is ONE LAP of the res....1.4 miles (obviously you can do more if you like though) At this stage now, it’s become more of a mental challenge than a physical one and he genuinely needs all the support he can get!! Any donations are welcome 😁 please share 🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏻‍♂️
