Why not join us for nice subzero this Wednesday the 23rd of May 2018. You have done the hard work of Warbsy birthday run, now you deserve a gentle run and cool icecream YUM YUM !
RVR has been invited to attend the following event, if you are interested in attending please let us know so we can let the organiser know roughly how many are planning on going.
Please read the following letter we had from the organiser.
My Name is MIA Thorne and I’m 11 years old, I have cerebral palsyand I’m hoping you can help me. I always do lots of fundraising,& Campaigning within the welsh assembly and I’m sure if you look at my twitter account @miathorne9 or google my name it will show you all the work I have done. I am ambassador or 2 charities and I’m also a Diana award holder.
I have organised a 5K Fun run in Pontypridd Park on June 16th 2018 and I was hoping some of your runners will come join me and dress up as a super hero giving a small donation for the both charities I support. These charities have helped me in the past and support Disabled children, children with life threatening conditions and Children with autism or additional needs.
I believe everyone should have the opportunity to shine and be a superhero, and to make it fun the 5K Run/Walk/Wheelchair in order to raise money and awareness for both charities I am a ambassador for. All abilities welcome as I’m doing it in my wheelchair and running some
Please dress as a super hero and put in a donation to help support. If you are willing to do a individual sponsorship even better. Huge thanks for your support
If you can let me know if you would like to do it and how many runners as hoping to get medals for the runners.
Thank you Mia Thorne
