On Tuesday 5 members ran 6.9km, to St Augustine's Church to help out in the church yard ahead of the judging for the London in bloom on Friday 8 July.

When we arrived we were met by Sue who had a list of things she wanted us to do in preparation for the big day. * Watering the fruit trees * Cutting the grass out around the trees * inserting watering pipes to the root of the trees * placing stakes into the ground around 3 tress to help them grow straight * Repositioning compost bins

We were able to complete all the tasks Sue had for us and at the end we were rewarded with banana bread she had baked for us to refuel on before our run back to Solutions.

Lets do more good in July Have you heard about the virtual run around the world competition throughout July being hosted by Run Things? Run Things gives half its profits to GoodGym and Mind, so any support we can give them is really encouraged.

The Run Around the World pits Teams North, South, East, West and Nomads against each other in a foot race around the equator. GoodGym is the captain of the Nomads, so when you sign up, make sure you choose Nomads.

A great thing about the event is that you can create a team so that all of your GoodGym friends can sign up and join your team, too. Once you've created the team, they just need to register and click 'join a team' and search for your team. It's a great chance for different GoodGym groups to have some friendly competition throughout the month, too!

There are medals for all participants, as well as competitions and a month of motivation. So please do sign up and encourage others to do so, too.
