Rachel Kearney, who led the run, said, "Due to the vulnerability of the people involved, we decided we would run along the river to get our legs working before slowing it down and splitting off into groups to hand out the cards in a gentle and approachable manner. It was incredibly worthwhile, with each person we approached appreciative of our support."
Alyx Murray-Jackman, King’s Physical Activity Co-ordinator and GoodGym leader, has been instrumental in setting up the partnership with the UK-wide GoodGym initiative. She said, "It feels fantastic to help charities and voluntary organisations on King’s doorstep that are doing great work to make London a thriving community."
Step by step, the GoodGym runners are supporting our aim to make the world a better place. Pounding the pavements, and putting up curtains, GoodGym is an innovative and fun way for staff and students to contribute to the wellbeing of the city in which they work and study.
