Last week we had the absolute pleasure of helping out @emmaussw with their C25K beginners group and Wow… It left us feeling so warm and happy inside, we simply had to share it with you guys! 🥰
Let us tell you about the amazing work @emmaussw do 🦸♂️
Emmaus South Wales supports people who have been homeless or socially excluded by providing a home with no time limit, the opportunity to gain work experience in a social enterprise, daily support and funded training. Every companion has their own room and access to shared communal spaces, with all living expenses covered and a weekly allowance on top of this. ♥️🏠
We felt so honoured when they reached out and asked if we’d help with virtual gait assessments as they ‘wanted to be in the right trainers before they began’ – they’ve already got off to a flying start! 🐾
We were fortunate enough to complete their virtual gait assessments, offer them all trainers at no profit to us and supply them with some extra running goodies to help get them on their way.
Michelle, Angela, Shaun and Paul have all experienced homelessness and are taking on Couch to 5K to raise money for Emmaus South Wales 🏴
It costs Emmaus South Wales approximately £150 per week for each companion supported. Paul, Michelle, Shaun, and Angela hope to raise enough to cover 30 days of support for the Emmaus South Wales community to help their fellow companions, as well as new companions joining the community.
We’re over the moon to have made this connection and we’re so looking forward to seeing how their running journeys fold out, you’re Bears for life now! 🐻♥️🐾
