Join the kit exchange for Together for Sport at junior parkrun 18th September

We know how much good it can do us to get outdoors and get active. But sometimes the cost of kit can be a barrier to getting involved.

Parkrun said: “In Leeds a quarter of children are now living in poverty – an increase of 9% in a year.

“No one should ever feel excluded from running for not having the right kit or equipment. That’s why we are proud to support #TogetherForSport, a project by Zero Waste Leeds, with the mission of helping those who need it to play the sport they love by accessing great quality second-hand sports kit.

“On the 18th September, we’re calling for donations of good quality trainers and non event-specific running tops, shorts and leggings in children’s and young people’s sizes.

“There will be a collection point at  junior parkruns across Leeds – come along and support this campaign.

“Please make sure that any donations are washed, clean and bagged before donating.”
