My parachute jump

On 21st of May I had one off the best days of my life. My family came with me to Headcorn airfield to see me jump out of a plane.

i would love you to feel the rush it gives you, and if I could afford it I wouldd be there every week as it is so good fun. My family think that I am mad, as I do drag racing and go-carting, having fun in my life.

GoodGym | Coach runs

Over a million older people in the UK are always or often lonely, some go for months without seeing friends or family. Visiting an older person as part of your weekly run can make a huge difference to their life.

We call the older people we visit coaches because they help motivate us to run and they share their wisdom. It’s amazing what you can learn from your coach. Coach runs can be fit around your schedule and don’t need to take up more than 20 minutes of your time per week.
