Kirstie completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Kirstie was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Kirstie is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
What a fantastic Sunday morning! 8 GoodGymers and Exe Nordic Walkers did a litter-pick in Riverside Valley Park and filled 8 bin liners with rubbish.
It was a warm and sunny morning when 5 Exe Nordic Walkers ad 3 GoodGymers met up in Riverside Valley park to do a community litter-pick.
We started off with a safety briefing and a little chat about what GoodGym does and the many ways in which we get fit by doing good. Sue, the leader of Exe Nordic Walkers, also told us about British Nordic Walking and the many sessions she leads in Exeter. Definitely worth checking out, it sounds great!
We then divided ourselves in two teams and set off picking litter on both sides of the river.
It was incredible how much we got done in 45 minutes!
We filled 8 bin liners with everything from cans, bottles, a bike tire, old toys and a towel, cardboard boxes, crisp bags, cigarette buds and plastic wrappers... Great work team! Also very lovely that so many members of the public thanked us as they walked past.
To finish with I want to give Paul, Guin, Kirstie, Louiseand Sue a BIG CHEER for having completed your first GoodGym session! We hope you enjoyed it and will come back soon for some more doing good and getting fit!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day! Take a look here for your next GoodGym session.
For this Community Mission we will be joined by some walkers from Exe Nordic Walkers! It will be a great morning of being out together in the green areas along the river and canal, clearing away the litter that unfortunately is a recurring problem in the area.
We will meet at 10 am on the green area by the river, between Salmon Pool Lane Play Area and Duckes Meadow. If you struggle to find the location or have any questoions please give Klara a call on 07795064906.
Join us and have some fun, do good and get fit!
