Sam Shipman,Get Into Reading project worker and marathon runner, writes to tell you about how TRO’s getting fit and how we need your help to raise £1500 for ‘Our Read’.
The Reader Organisation are once again heading out in force to run 5 whole kilometres to raise money for ‘Our Read’ – a huge project we’re launching next year to replace what was ‘Liverpool Reads’, giving away thousands of free books across the country. The photo above was last year’s team… this year’s team is even bigger and better: fifteen of our staff have plucked up the courage to run in public along the streets of Liverpool.
We have been training hard in many different ways, weekly runs around Sefton Park wearing an assortment of amusing attire – mainly Patrick’s headband (picture to follow) and Emma Hayward’s snazzy (in her words) running trousers with a go faster stripe down them – six kilometre power walks during strong winds in West Kirby, badminton, cycling, tennis and much, much more. We really have become an active organisation, please help us to reach our fundraising target of £500, and if you can be there on the day to cheer us on we would really appreciate it!
