The Florrie charity runner runs half-marathon in alley

On Saturday 27th February, Sefton Park Rangers’ 40 squad members ran the distance of Liverpool to Amsterdam in aid of The Florrie after they found out where struggling for funding.

And the weeks of training paid off. With a cumulative distance of 812k, they smashed their £2,000k target and it keeps rising, now close to £5,000.

As well as many runners in Liverpool, some were as far afield as Australia and Stockholm, with the team using Strava to feel connected. 

All 35 members of the Sefton Park Rangers squad and club officials will be running a half marathon in order to complete the distance keeping connected virtually via strava, a running app.

One of the Sefton Park Rangers team, Gaz Thomas, had a particularly odd run. He had to self-isolate due to coming in contact with someone with Covid, but his urge to not let the team down did not stop him.

To help the effort to raise funds for The Florrie led Gaz to run a complete half marathon in the back alley of his house just off Aigburth Road, running up and down the confined space for over 2 hours to over 21k. What an effort.

The Florrie has provided local vulnerable residents with support and been used as a food bank throughout the pandemic along with recently announcing free counseling sessions for L8 residents in partnership with our friends at the Mind Map. 

The lads are hoping to break the £5k barrier by Friday when the fundraiser ends: Support by donating here Fundraiser by Sefton Park Rangers : Sefton Park Rangers . Liverpool to Amsterdam Run (gofundme.com)
