Loads of fun and fund-raising at Headway's Easter Fun Run at Cofton Park

AN EGGS-CELLENT day was had by all at Headway’s fourth Easter Fun Run on Sunday.

The 5km event was a complete sell-out and raised more than £2,000 for brain injury charity Headway Birmingham and Solihull (HBS).

More than 200 participants ran, jogged and walked their way through the woodland pathways of Cofton Park.




It was a real milestone for Gurinder Singh, one of the charity’s clients, who took part for the first time.

Sue Tyler, CEO of HBS, said they were really proud of Gurinder who was seriously injured when he was hit by a vehicle as a child.


He now attends Headway’s rehabilitation centre at Moseley Hall Hospital.

Sue said: “While he recovered well physically, his cognitive ability was affected, leaving him with motivation issues and a lack of confidence to try anything new.

“Completing the run was therefore a big achievement and one that will undoubtedly inspire others at Headway too.”

Fun run participants received an Easter egg donated by local supermarkets and an Easter-themed medal thanks to generous sponsorship from Birmingham company Frenkel Topping.

Certificates and flowers were awarded to the first man and woman over the finish line and to the person with the best Easter-themed outfit.
