Rockley Watersports family and friends run for Julia’s House

This year, Rockley's many wonderful children along with their friends from local schools Courthill, Longfleet and Lilliput will be running the Bournemouth Running Festival on 6th October to raise money for the fantastic local charity, Julia's House.

Over the past five years, Rockley Watersports has worked very closely with Julia's House to raise as much money and awareness as we possibly can. Operations Director Rob Clark has conquered the etape twice, Managing Director Pip Woods has competed in countless triathlons and collectively as a team we have taken part in many half marathons, 10km runs and cycling events, raising thousands of pounds in the process. It is true when they say you should lead by example because now the wonderful Rockley children and their amazing friends have decided to get together and take the lead and all of us as parents could not be prouder!

At the moment, about 30 children aged between 6 and 10 years will be gathering together to run the 1.5km and 2km and to say they are a little excited is an understatement! Courthill Mum, Emma Clark who is helping to organise the group and whose daughter Josie will be running the 1.5km race said; "I am really excited to be part of bringing together a group of children to run for Julia’s House. We are fortunate to be fit and healthy and I aim to pass on this appreciation to our children. Running for Julia’s House is the perfect event to encourage our kids to be active, have something to aim for and to raise their awareness of children that lead very different lives to theirs. Running with a group of friends brings so much excitement, encouragement and it’s great for them as a collective to understand the amazing care that Julia’s House gives for children.  Really looking forward to the running festival on October 6th!"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My own daughetr Daisy who absolutely loves sport but simply cannot see the point of just running (as a keen runner myself I find this slightly disappointing!!) is very much embracing the challenge and my super competitive son Joseph who would much rather be kicking a football around has decided he's going to try and win!! Both however are super excited to be running with their school friends.

I've ofetn spoken to both my children about Julia's House and the other weekend I took Daisy down to Rockley Point where the siblings of Julia's House were spending the weekend with us, taking part in loads of activities. I think that it is so important that they undestand the value of helping others whenever they can and that it can be both fun and challenging. 

So while we leave the children do all the hard work, us parents will be cheering them on at the start and finish line. We only ask that as many of you as possible sponsor as much as you can to help them raise as much money possible. We know it will really spur our children on and we promise you it will be the best money you spend this year!
