The Run 5K for the NHS
initiative is ongoing and in the first forty-eight hours Kevin Keehan
& Scott Kirkwood
had smashed through the five thousand pound barrier.
As a football community, the boys were among those lost without their beloved game due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Being on lockdown can be tough but NHS workers are putting their lives at risk every single day to help save the lives of others.
Football, rightly so, is not at the forefront of our minds, when so many people up and down the country are losing loved ones.
Where football is bringing people together. You have so many wonderful characters in the game and the football community believe they can do their bit to help the NHS at this unprecedented time.
So whilst we are on lockdown, we are allowed our daily exercise.
Being football fans, especially players, they felt they should take advantage of the fact that they can still look after their own health by going out for run, bike ride or walk; obviously with social distancing in mind.
The suggested Run 5k for the NHS, falls within the recommended amount of time they are able to exercise each day, as set out by the government.
So you could be a player, a supporter, the kit man, a referee or the person who works in the tea hut.
They would love to see anyone affiliated with one of the city's local clubs take part.
