On Sunday 5th September, the Avanta Care team ran the Jane Tomlinson Run For All Leeds 10k.
The team were running in support of Learning Partnerships, a Leeds-based charity that does fantastic work supporting children, young people and adults in deprived areas.
The team, who have been training hard for the past three months in preparation for the run arrived bright-eyed, ready and raring to go on what was a bright, sunny Sunday morning.
The run began on Kirkstall Road, just outside Leeds city centre. There was a fantastic atmosphere and cheers, applause and smiles all around as the Mayor of Leeds officially began the run.
The route took the runners away from Leeds centre, past the picturesque Kirkstall Abbey, to Horsforth, where the route then looped back on itself, back through Kirkstall to the finishing line.
Each member of the Avanta team completed the run, collecting a medal and goody bag as they finished. They then went for a well-deserved drink and meal.
So far we have raised over £450 for the charity! We would like to say a huge “Thank you” to everybody who has sponsored us so far.
