WALK TO SUPPORT - CIRCUITS FOR CYRENIANS

  

Walk to Support

 Walk to Support’ was an event organised by Peter Morrisey & staff at Whitefriars Property Services in partnership with Coventry Cyrenians (Charity to help the homeless in Coventry).   The event took place during their lunch break on Friday 26th June 2015, at Coventry Rugby Club in Spon End.  Coventry Cyrenians staff attended to jog and walk around the pitch (Circuits for Cyrenians) and give their support to the runners, handing out water and providing the fancy dress costumes, which came somewhat of a shock to some of the more serious contestants!

The idea came about earlier this year, when a challenge was thrown down to a member of the Whitefriars team about his running speed, given his age. This developed into a  multi-team challenge 50m sprint with younger team member being confident of an easy win and others (maybe slightly older) team members training to win! Throw in a 3 legged race team and costumes and you have the fun run as made by the Whitefriars team! Despite the rain, much fun and merriment was had on the day whilst raising significant donation to Cyrenians to support our services to homeless people.

                                                                                          Wesley Belle (pictured left) was the overall the winner.

Along with the sponsorship forms they held a ‘Guess the winner’ competition, a cake sale, a local dress down day and a raffle, as well as collecting small change. 

They have raised over £500 for Cyrenians, which is a fantastic amount.
