As part of our ongoing commitment for our nominated charity, The Island Mentoring Scheme, we’ve sent our toughest team members to run and compete in the York 10K. The warm and humid climate made this no easy task but spurred on by a pint at the finish line, each team member successfully completed the course.
What was witnessed during the race was phenomenal. Everybody dug deep, ran through their own personal barriers and helped each other to reach the finish line. Nobody got left behind.
As a result, we are extremely proud of how far we’ve travelled and couldn’t be happier with those involved.
We raised an incredible…. £2,981.38!!!
However, the challenge for us isn’t over yet. Until next time, Yorkshire 10 Mile 2019…
Who are The Island?
The Island is a charity based in York, which links young people with volunteer mentors with whom they meet on a weekly basis over the course of a year (or longer if required).
This allows them to develop supportive, ongoing relationships, whilst also providing them with the undivided attention and ‘islands of space and time’ they need to increase their confidence and self-esteem, participate in worthwhile recreational activities, and move forward in their lives.
Their amazing team works hard to ensure that our charity is able to deliver outstanding mentoring to the children and young people who use our services. To find out more about the charity, click here: https://www.theislandyork.org/
We hope to continue to take part in these amazing events to help raise money and awareness of this fantastic cause.
