British Heart Foundation 10k

Sunday 23rd October 2011 saw Annexe Connects take part in the British Heart Foundation 5k or 10k in Pollok Park. Everyone taking part did so for different health and social reasons, helping themselves at the same time as helping others.

Some had never been to Pollok Park before, and for most it was the first time taking part in a sponsored walk while others simply wanted to tackle a challenge. Helen Henderson, Margaret Allison, Jenny Storie, Michele Keenan and Angie Wylie completed the 5k and Sandra Jackson, Jane Cowie and Grace Sergeant completed the 10k. (Right, Sandra and Grace celebrate success).

Margaret just wanted to say what a total trouper Helen Henderson was as she really kept her going when she was tempted to give up at the first hill.

Everyone proudly collected their medals, had a quick visit to the Burrell Collection and had a good laugh at the fact that Sandra, Jane and Grace were officially last home on the day. In their defence, they did walk, while everyone else ran! And 10k is 10k and a great achievement in anyone’s book.

Annexe Connects raised £153 sponsorship for British Heart Foundation. Well done everyone! Thanks to Joe and Susanne for their support and transport on the day.
