Wow, what an incredible achievement for these women to complete their first 5km Fun Run! We were lucky enough to have Arnold Schwarzenegger surprise us all with an inspirational speech to all the runners and walkers praising their efforts in running for the kids. He then went to start the race, which was entertaining in itself listening to his live commentary, as 1000’s shuffled through the start and on their way into the Burnley Tunnel!
It’s been such an enjoyable experience working closely with these ladies, overseeing their improvements in both their training programs and our weekly education workshops.
What we LOVE seeing are the new friendships that have formed as a result of sharing this positive experience together. The girls loved their learning to jog/run program so much, this last week of ‘recovery’ has left them with a feeling of “so when’s the next one?”
We thank everyone in the gym for their sincere interest and support, it’s truly encouraging, all in all, we raised $590 as a team for the Good Friday Appeal, a special charity we will support every year with our efforts.
We cannot wait for our next program here under the 1M1B banner, to EMPOWER more women with the confidence, knowledge, skills and belief to achieve and experience life!
