Nearly one hundred people attended a charity Run and Fun event in Albert Park.
Some people took part in the run while others lent their support..
The Blithe Campaign, founded by Multimedia PR students at Teesside University, aims to help the schools and the children in Middlesbrough.
“Let us put the fun into funding” is their slogan.
Daniel Vinzens, a representative of the Blithe Campaign, said: “We are working together with the local Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation and are supporting their hardship fund for local schools to support children in need.”
There were two different runs: Fund-Run 5km and Fun-Run 3km. The participation fee is £3 for adults and £1 for children aged under 12. If people do not like running, they will buy some cakes for charity. All the money will be used to help the schools and the children in Middlesbrough and Teesside.
Many people actively engaged with them as volunteers.
Mikel is one of these volunteers helping to sell charity cakes.
He said:” This is a very meaningful event. People are very helpful. I even found some people bought a cake for more than 50p price. They donate more money for the charity.”
In the end of the event, Daniel Vinzens told me:” We raised about £100 which is awesome.”
