Residents Complete Sutton Fun Run

12 Jun 2024 | Category: News

Congratulations to tenants David and Daniel, who completed the Sutton Fun Run recently.

The brothers – who have been with the Trust since last Autumn – both ran the course with the help of Senior Support Worker Tori.

David, who has done the Fun Run before but was keen to take on the challenge again, told us: “It was fun. I liked doing it. It was good. I am very fit.”

Daniel was also pleased, saying: “There were lots of people there.”

David is sports-mad and has been enjoying the Trust’s football sessions at Goals on a Monday night, as well as playing Badminton at Special Olympics every week.

As soon as he had expressed a desire to complete the run, his entry was completed.

The brothers are inseparable, so Daniel wanted to do it too, once his younger sibling had entered.

The route took an 8.5-mile course through the surroundings of Royal Sutton Coldfield, beginning on Mill Street and heading into Sutton Park – the largest urban park in Europe – before finishing in the Town Centre.

There is a selection of pictures below, including David and Daniel at the starting line, but also showing the pair proudly showing their medals.

The Fun Run is one of the longest-established in the country with origins dating back to the early 80s. Since the first event in 1982 over £5.1million has been distributed to charities and voluntary organisations.
