Issy’s Great Edinburgh Run! And by ‘Run’, I probably mean Walk

Isabelle is running the Great Edinburgh Run 2017!

Yeah…I can’t believe it either! But as Citywise mentors we’re always telling the kids to be resilient and challenge themselves, so I’m going to do exactly that! Clearly I’m not the running type (in fact, I shamefully bought my first pair of running shoes specifically for this…) but I’m going to go the extra mile (or should I say five miles!) for Citywise and give my very first run my very best shot! (And be grateful the entire time that there are no rules against walking half of it…)

Please show your support over at the donate button and you can help me to help some kids flourish with Citywise! 🙂

We’re raising funds for the Citywise ‘Heroes Academy’ summer projects. The money raised at last year’s Great Manchester Run gave 120 young people access to the free holiday club. The play-based curriculum is designed to support their transition from primary to secondary school: learning in disguise as fun! We use the theme of superheroes to help young people discover what it takes to become an everyday hero.  #thecityneedsheroes – could you be one?
