Young fundraiser hits headlines at Sheffield run

Young fundraiser hits headlines at Sheffield run

Big-hearted Dylan Cunningham was one of over 1000 young runners that joined #ArenaOwl and took part in the recent Arena Group Sheffield Junior and Mini fun run. 

Dylan, aged five, pulled on his trainers to raise funds for a local charity close to his heart that will help other children benefit from his favourite city farm.

So far Dylan has raised £365 to support the work of Whirlow Hall Farm Trust, which describes itself as a “classroom in the countryside” and is visited by over 10,000 children and young people each year. and was the official charity of the mini and junior run orgnised by Run for All.

Dylan’s mum, Louise, said: “The event was advertised at Dylan's school and he was very excited to take part. He loves to run and wanted to raise money to help children in his local area so they would get the opportunity to enjoy Whirlow Hall Farm just as much as he does. 

“All the family will be coming to the event to support and cheer him on and his little sister Poppy is very excited to watch him run. We are incredibly proud of him and hope it encourages other children to raise money for great local charities.”

Arena Group has sponsored a series of runs ensuring that they are free to enter for young people aged 3 - 14 who can partiicpate in a fun, vibrant event and support a worthy cause if they choose.

Adrian Fitzpatrick, Arena's Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to support an event that encourages youngsters to be more active and to support local good causes. Dylan has certainly captured the spirit of the run. It's great to see him and his family having a really enjoyable day alongside so many other young people and families.”

Why not come along and support runs in Leeds, York, Bury and Sheffield happening later in the year. Better still, sign the kids up or get your local school or community group involved in a great occassion.
