2020 is here and GoodGym Norwich is back to do more amazing good deeds this year.
The 1st Group Run of the year was to do a litter pick around the Riverside area of Norwich, something I'd noticed had got quite messy over the festive period. A big thank you to Voluntary Norfolk who lent us litter pickers and high vis jackets through the LUMi platform.
Becky and George were taking part in their 1st GoodGym ventures.
A big wow to Beks who was completing her 100th good deed! What a way to start the year.
Thank you to Katy for being back runner and Sandra for being walk leader.
After a gentle 1.5km jog/walk down to Riverside, the GoodGymers assembled in small groups and armed themselves with a litter picker, gloves and a bin bag and headed off to make the area much cleaner... which they sure did!
After 40 minutes, we had many bags of rubbish that Morrisons kindly disposed of for us.
A great little task to start 2020 with.
Next week we have a longer run as we visit Baby Bank Norfolk.

I'm the Trainer for GoodGym Norwich. I love running and have led a lot of running groups in the Norfolk area, none as fun as the GG family.
