Description

GoodGym arrives in Solihull

Come and find out how you can do good and get fit in Solihull. Each week we'll be running to support some great charities and community groups throughout the local area. We'll run, complete a task, and run back all within 90 minutes. You'll get fit, help out and meet some great new people. You'll also be able to find out about all the great work we do with older people tackling social isolation and loneliness.

For our first ever Solihull task we'll be heading 2.5km to Newlands Bishop Farm, a charitable organisations which provides activities and work based learning to people with learning disabilities and mental health problems. They'll be lots to do!

GoodGym Solihull meets every Wednesday evening, 6.15pm, at Broomfields Hall on Union Street. There are toilets and a space to store bags while out on the run. We'll aim to leave for our run at 6:30pm and be back by 8.00pm.

GoodGym welcomes runners of all abilities. All our runs are backmarked and we never leave anyone behind. Don't be shy, we're a very friendly bunch.

GoodGym would like to thank Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and the West Midlands Combined Authority for making GoodGym possible in Solihull.

Help isolated older people in Solihull

GoodGym runners will be helping Solihull's most isolated and lonely residents by making social visits and completing household tasks. It's a quick and easy way to make a real difference to someone elses happiness. To get involved in our support for older people click here to become a member and start the process. You'll need to complete a DBS check and so bring some identification documents along to one of our sessions.
