Kingsway 5k Fun Parkrun

Give as you Live Run!

On Sunday 15th of April 2018, Give as you Live HQ took part in the Kingsway 5k Fun Run in aid of the Pied Piper appeal. The Pied Piper appeal is the leading children's charity in Gloucestershire. They make a difference in the lives of sick and disabled children in the county. This is all done by funding medical and practical equipment that enhances care and treatment for children in the hospital and in the special schools in Gloucestershire.

Despite the overcast weather the team set off to run 5k at 10.10 am alongside 220 other participants. For most of the team, this was their first 5K run, and it was the first time doing a team run.  We all completed the challenge being rewarded with an engraved medal and a goody bag.

The Fun Run was a great challenge for team building and it allowed us to set a goal to ‘get up and get fit’. It was great to see how the team encouraged their colleagues to complete the course with everyone cheering their colleagues on across the finishing line.

Considering this was the first 5k, we all finished the course in good time. One member of our team started running a couple of weeks before the event completing it in under 27 minutes!
