Royal Mail is encouraging families to put their best foot forward this May by taking part in the company’s new 5km or 10km fun runs.
Taking place in Birmingham (10th), Glasgow (17th) and London (24th), this year marks the first time the company has established a series of community-wide runs. This year the money raised will go to Royal Mail’s Charity of the Year, the Stroke Association.
Lily Heinemann, Royal Mail’s head of corporate responsibility and community investment said: “With operations in every local community, we understand the impact that stroke can have. The fun runs have been designed to not only raise much-needed funds but also give families the chance to spend time together, work up a sweat and most importantly, have fun!
“In the next two years, Royal Mail wants to help change the lives of thousands of people affected by stroke across the UK by raising at least £2 million for the Stroke Association.”
In addition to the 5km and 10km runs, a series of fun-filled activities will be taking place at the events such as face painting, sack races and the classic, guess the weight of the parcel – making them the perfect day out for adults, families and children of all ages and abilities who are looking to get active and enjoy the spring sunshine.
