Maidenhead Lions Fundrun

In September 2013, Bracknell Lions entered a team into the Maidenhead Lions "Fundrun" event- a team relay race of the athletics track to see how many laps could be completed in 55 minutes.

The Bracknell Lions team was 10 strong (which is fantastic as in April we only had 5 members!), incuding novices at running and a couple of more experienced runners.

  

The event was set up to suit all abilities and team members could walk or run their laps. Our team completed a huge 50 laps in 55 minutes, raising more than 625 in the process and coming third!

The money will be split 50:50 between Thames Valley Adventure Playground (which is where the Me 2 Club 10 year anniversary party was held earlier this year) and the Pulse Oximeter we bought in September for a local boy.

 

We look forwards to similar events in the future! Well done Maidenhead Lions for organising such a brilliant event!
