Those getting involved in 5KMay for us

This May, the School-Home Support team in Blackpool have challenged themselves to complete a combined virtual walk, run, jog or crawl to School-Home Support head office. That’s an incredible 251 miles! 

Sarah Loy, who is a Targeted Support Coordinator in Blackpool, and also the mastermind behind the Blackpool efforts, said: “The Blackpool team has been working relentlessly over the pandemic. Moving to remote working means we are never actually together as a team. Walking to our head office in London is a way of bringing back a bit of team spirit and improving wellbeing. 

The 251 miles will not only boost my own personal fitness, as working from home has reduced the amount of walking I do dramatically, but will also be a boost to morale and also get us all working towards the same goal, virtually together. Hopefully it will raise a smile and awareness of School-Home Support along the way.”

In addition, our friends at Weil are also getting involved in the #5KMay challenge.
