From hanging curtains for Mr H because he can't manage it on his own, to shovelling a tonne of compost for the Food Growers Group so they can grow vegetables - every GoodGym run is different.

Good Deeds done
Birmingham has set a target of 75 good deeds and 1,800kms run in January - let's make it happen!
Before GoodGym I always lost motivation to stick at running or the gym but now I run two or three times a week.
Running with Goodgym is great because I get fit, do good and get to hang with a load of awesome people.
New to running?
Many people who don't run, are worried about running or haven't run for ages start running with GoodGym every week on our group runs. If you'd like to ease your way into GoodGym with a session specially for those who are new to running or new to GoodGym, you might want to try a starter session.
Starter sessions will have a short run and an easier task helping out a community org.
The World's most innovative Aging projects.
GoodGym offers an imaginative alternative to conventional gyms, tapping into the human potential of local communities.
Why burn energy in the gym when you could harness that effort to spruce up public spaces, or visit lonely pensioners?
