We Hill Run Four Cakes
10 GoodGymers made their way 3.9km to help the Mencap - Brent in Brent.
- Monday, 25th of October 2021
- Led by Pritesh Mistry
It was a big night for Brent with two long lost visitors, and one goodbye!
Area Activator Pritesh was back for the first time in a long time, along with Claire who we were all happy to see visit us.
It was great to see such a big group (double figures!) but sad that it would be James's last regular session in Brent.
Once we were warm we ran the short distance to Brent Mencap who had lots of cleaning materials ready and waiting for us to tackle their outdoor area. Pete got to work with the broom, sweeping the paths. Rebecca did a little weeding before joining Tabitha, James, Monica and Helen cleaning the windows outside....with some helpful pointers from a passerby
" You missed a bit!"
In no time at all it was spick and span and we stopped to admire our work and take a beautiful team photo.
Our work was done, but our time wasn't up and Claire led us to the middle of a nearby hill and gave us some pointers on mastering a hill run. We split into teams and pumped our arms up the hill, not once, not twice, but FOUR times, cheering on the other team when they ran up.
Not quite ready to finish up, we took a winding route back to Papagayo and gently cooled down and stretched. With the first task done, it was time for the second task of the night......to give James the send off he deserved. James has been part of Goodgym Brent for over two years now and we will miss him, but wish him well in his new adventures. For those who turned up just for the promise of cake, they were not disappointed as we had not one, not two, but FOUR cakes to celebrate!
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
