It was amazing to see and hear about so many members of the #GoalballFamily taking part in the 5k Day on Saturday 20th March.
It didn’t matter how people completed the 5k – some people walked, some people jogged, some people ran, some people cycled and some people did a combination. Neither did it matter how fast they completed it in as it was simply just a case of getting out and getting active, knowing that other people elsewhere around the UK were too. We even got a few dogs joining in!
Players from lots of different clubs took part including some of our new Ambassadors and some members of the new Youth Forum. A special mention to Lee Robshaw from Croysutt Warriors Goalball Club who completed a 5k in the morning and then another 5k in the afternoon!

We must also say ‘Congratulations’ to all of the students and staff at RNC who took part in a sponsored walk around the College campus on Saturday (to raise money for a film projector and screen). Over an 8 hour period, they collectively completed 721 laps, smashing their 500 mile target!
