Three year old Eagan from Edinburgh loves being active and his mum, Cheryl, saw the Kids’ Kilometre event on Saturday 27th May as the perfect opportunity for him to combine having lots of fun with raising money for a worthy cause.
Cheryl said “We chose to support Team Macmillan as Eagan’s Grandad had a close call with bowel cancer a few years ago, but thanks to early screening he was treated quickly and continues to have yearly check ups. Macmillan was a valuable source of information and advice during this time.”
The Kids’ Kilometre is a brand new event which was added to the Edinburgh Marathon Festival this year due to the popularity of the junior races.
Marketing Director, Annette Drummond, said: “We’re pleasantly surprised at the popularity of our ever-growing junior races and decided to add two new events to the festival this year in order to make it more inclusive to our younger runners. Eagan is a fantastic example of how EMF can help little ones do something active, whilst raising money at the same time.”
