On Sunday 16th March over a thousand Where’s Wally enthusiasts gathered in Victoria Park London to show their stripes and run either 5 or 10K for the National Literacy Trust. The sun shone its brightest (a little different to last years’ run in the snow!) as Wallys collected their tops, hats and spectacles ready for the stripiest run of the year…
The day started with a wonderful Where’s Wally Warm up, those Wallys had some serious moves :
Once the Wallys were limbered up they headed for the start point, eager to begin their run and show those who had sponsored them what they were made of! A sea of stripes set off at 11.00 am for their sunny run/walk/jog around the park..
Enthusiastic crowds gathered to cheer on the runners adding to the fantastic atmosphere on the day.
All ages came together to raise funds for the National Literacy Trust, the day even saw lots of Mini-Wally’s take part too!
The day was huge success for the National Literacy Trust, who are on target to raise over £100,000 from the event! Here at Doitforcharity we’d like to say a huge well done to all those that took part, it was a wonderful day full of Wallys and we very much enjoyed being part of it.
