Running for Citywise – Jessica!

Jessica is running the Great Edinburgh Run 2017!

Hi everyone!

I’ll be running (shock horror, I know!) 5 miles in the Great Edinburgh Run on the 23rd of April in aid of Citywise and would love it if I could raise my target of £250 in sponsorship. As a mentor for the charity, I get to see just how much a difference Citywise makes for children – it’s a really worthy cause, so pretty please give what you can, no matter how little!

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?
