Thank you to everyone who took part in our Lamp5k event
We are so overwhelmed by the participation and support of our Lamp 5k event.
The initiative was a great success with thousands of people locally, nationally and internationally taking part. As well as many independent participants, around 1,500 people joined the dedicated Strava running group from all over the world, as far away as Russia, Vietnam and India. The aim was to cover enough distance to travel around the world once and this was not only achieved, but doubled by the end of the week.
Donations are still being collected for the amazing efforts of all participants in the Lamp5k. You can pledge your support by donating at www.lampadvocacy.co.uk/lamp5k/
Despite the inclement weather, local author Stewart Bint took a literal approach to this year’s theme, embarking on two 5km walks, all while barefoot. A keen walker and advocate for good mental health, Stewart trudged across fields, bridleways, gravel paths and urban streets without shoes or socks to challenge himself, both mentally and physically.
Local businesses also supported the initiative including lead sponsor, the Hinckley and Rugby Building Society, plus One Creative Design Agency, Hollingsworths Solicitors, Rutland House Counselling and Psychotherapy, Finance Lab, Ripple Touch, HSP Financial Planning, 1s+ Choice, Aspray, Sarah Higgins Corporate Coaching, Imperial Roofing Supplies UK, Cross Productions, Dodds Solicitors, The Property Fox and Glenfield Electrical.
