The Bank Holiday sunshine made a very welcome appearance at this year’s Community Fun Run at Rowley Lane where Myisrael fielded a very diverse team!

This was the 2nd time that we’ve taken part and once again our runners had the choice of a 1k, 5k or 10k track.

Our 10k runners finished the course in less than 50 minutes despite injuries whilst some of our younger team members took a leisurely stroll around the course, but of course made a final sprint to the finish line!

Karen Cohen, who was participating in her first sponsored challenge said, “It’s a really great event to be involved in, there’s something for everyone and it’s been a personal challenge to me that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed.  I’ve become more aware of Myisrael over the past few months and I’m delighted to have had the opportunity to support them this weekend.”

Ella and Brandon Wise, aged 8 and 6 and who ran the 1k used the Myisrael website to create their very own Fun Run sponsorship page.  “We’ve been here before and really enjoy it, but we really liked looking at our page every day to see if we’d hit our target, it made us feel grown up and it was really fun to do!”

Our thanks go to all the runners who have raised vital funds for Myisrael projects.  Well done to all.
