#TeamWelcare Smashs The British 10K Run!

Published: 1 Aug 2017

Our second year taking part in the British 10K London Run was a huge success!

Running, jogging and walking on Sunday 9th July, we had a fantastic 19 runners making up #TeamWelcare from a wide range of areas, ages and reasons for supporting the charity. They all did brilliantly, with some smashing their personal best’s and one of our team even winning a certificate for being the fastest in the aged over 80’s category! Afterwards we were really pleased to meet with and congratulate those that could join us for a little drinks reception. As well as their sporting performances, #TeamWelcare are outdoing themselves on the fundraising! Although money is still coming in, we are looking close to raising around £5,000 from the event! We are so proud of and thankful to everyone who took part, donated and supported on the day – thank you!! Special thanks also goes to the companies that donated matched giving on behalf of their employees who ran.

The whole day was fun and inspiring, and we are looking forward to doing it all again in 2018. We’ve had such positive feedback from the team and their supporters. If you’d like to join us by supporting the team or taking part next year, put Sunday 15th July 2018 in your diaries and keep an eye out for the updates!
