The Gamewagon team helped RightToPlay to raise over £50,000 in last weeks 5K run in Battersea Park to help improve the lives of children all over the world. Ever since we first met RightToPlay there was a match between their values and our own.
Kids love to play no matter where or when and have the right to do so. Anything we can do to help kids all over the world to play through our involvement here in the UK hits the right chord with us.
“Thank you so much to you and the rest of the Gamewagon team for supporting the Right To Play 5K Challenge 2013. It was great to have you there and it really added to the overall atmosphere and enjoyment of the day for our runners.” Kathryn Roche – RightToPlay
323 runners overall (our own John Lilley managed to beat his personal best and managed the 5K in 27 Minutes and 30 Seconds) ran on a sun-filled Battersea Park on Friday evening and overall the event has raised an incredible £54,000 so far!
Thanks to this event (and other fund raising) thousands of children’s lives will be changed forever. Right To Play are able to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease in the most disadvantaged communities around the world.
Please check out the video of the event on You Tube here.
We would like to thank Right To Play for the opportunity to help and we hope to help at the Right To Play 5K again next year!
