Braveheart runs set to help charity



On St Andrew’s Day, November 30, at approximately 1pm, Peterhead Jogscotland is organising a number of Braveheart Fun Runs in aid of charity.

The event is being organised in association with Peterhead Football Club.

Those going along can take part in the 1km,3km, 5km walk jog or run or the 10km jog or run in support of Dave Cox, and the Scottish Association of Mental Health.

Peterhead FC player David Cox went public about a month ago to reveal he had been suffering from mental health problems.

The 25-year-old hoped that by talking about the subject others who have had similar problems will come forward and ask for help like he has.

He said in an interview at the time that Peterhead FC manager Jim McInally had been ‘unbelievable’.

He said he had supported him by taking him into his home and allowing him to stay there until he was feeling better.

The Scottish Association of Mental Health is one of the charities which has helped David, and it was decided to raie cash for the cause through the runs.

As well as the Braveheart Fun Runs there will be plenty to keep all ages amused on the day including face painting, bouncy castles, fundraising stalls and lots to eat and drink.

The organisers will also be awarding spot prizes for the best dressed Bravehearts and Junior Braves.

It promises to be a great day for all the family!

Jogscotland has set up a Justgiving site so people can donate to the charity beforehand, and register for the event at the same time.

Those competing are asked to ensure they state which distance they will be taking part in.

There is a minimum donation is £5, however the organisers are hoping people will give generously to this great charity which has helped so many people throughout Scotland.
