RUN4YOU – follow up

What a blessed day it was for everyone. The best word to describe it is: excellent!
People do support mental health; the evidence is in the support we received for the Run4You event, but more about that later on.

All the months of planning and hard work came together and fitted together like a hand in a glove! The committee (I call them the Dream Team) came and helped with the set up. The team consisted mostly of my family. One of my brothers was responsible for the sound. The music helped to create an exciting atmosphere. It was such an amazing feeling and great honour when Vista’s minibus arrived on the premises. They brought beautiful, coloured Happiness HELPS banners that we used to set up a start and finish point. It created such a welcoming effect.DSCN6137
