The Stratford Launch and Bear Grylls!

Hi Everyone

So after the excitement of the Kids Run Free Annual Event last weekend we were back to our normal four events. With one rather large exception - we launched our first Kids Run Free event in Stratford! After the success of KRF in Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry and Leamington Spa we finally managed to branch out to Stratford setting up at Shottery Fields and hit the front page of the Stratford Observer. A massive thank you to Eleanor from The Converstation who helped to ensure that we had enough volunteers at the event and helped to organise the equipment. Also a BIG THANKYOU to the people of Stratford who showed up and had fun!

Great turn out at Leamington KRF
At Leamington's KRF event the Stanley family received their Flip2bFit prize for winning the Treasure Hunt at the previous weeks Kids Run Free Annual Festival.

On Saturday Gail and Martine showcased Kids Run Free at Scouts Bear Day at the National Agricultural Centre in Stoneleigh. Over 4000 beavers, cubs and scouts were present and took part in many activities during the day. The Kids Run Free section was placed outside in the 'Fitness Zone' and was enjoyed by many throughout the day!

Finally the day was rounded off wonderfully with a visit by Chief Scout Bear Grylls who arrived in style by helicopter and was greeted by throngs of excited beavers, cubs and Scouts from around the county.

Thank you to all the kids who gave Kids Run Free at Scout Bear Day a chance this year, we really enjoyed being there and the atmosphere on the day was just fantastic. 

Hope to see you all at Novembers Kids Run Free Events in Leamington, Birmingham, Coventry, Solihull and Stratford.

The Kids Run Free Team!
