SSAFA Fun Run in Glasgow

Lace up your trainers and run to make a difference to the lives of our Armed Forces family.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in in the Glasgow Fun Run and 1 Mile Walk.  A glorious day of sunshine poured down on SSAFA on the participants on the day.  A team for 2SCOTS accompanied our Veteran Para’s on stewarding duty while the day was kicked off with a warm up by our fitness instructor and veteran piper!  Our runners and walkers took in the beautiful scenery around Glasgow Green made all the more beautiful by the rays of sunshine bursting through the clouds.

An event like this takes a lot of organising behind the scenes and the branch would like to say a special thank you to John Henderson and Una Smith for organising the event, all the SSAFA volunteers to turned up to help on the day, Springburn Harriers for their expertise and involvement, 2SCOTA and Terry and his Paratroopers, Ian for the coming home centre who assisted with the marquees, our piper, photographers and everyone else who played a part in the day.

We are already looking forward to next years event which will be bigger and better so watch this space!

In the meantime please have look at the photos from this years event on our Facebook Page.
