To celebrate a decade of Goodgym, we really paid tribute to the collaborative ethos of the movement in the Jewellery Quarter today. We joined up with Goodgym-er Karin for her Clean Up event, for World Clean Up Day, which is organised by a global movement called Let’s Do It World. She organised it through her role with the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District. Then, through our Goodgym mission, we attracted some volunteers from Greenpeace. So many good forces combining on a sunny afternoon in the heart of Birmingham! Well done everyone, especially to the new Goodgym-ers who signed up to experience this for the first time through our mission; we hope to see you again for missions or group runs (you can find us every Tuesday 6pm at nearby 1000 Trades bar, click on the Group Runs tab to find out what we're doing). Special mention also has to go to Sam and Liam, who made it all the way from... across the road to join us! Motivation in strides, but we were very happy to have your help today. We did a great job filling bags of rubbish, which we left for collection at the back of St. Paul's.
