17 May Four Year-old Running For The Town Foundation
At the age of just four, Eleanor Pinder, is taking part in the Lindley 2k fun run to raise money for the Town Foundation.
The remarkable young Terrier has been running since she was aged just 18 months, after completing a 1k fun run at Greenhead Park.
Now she prepares to take on an evening bigger challenge, with the fun run taking place on Sunday 1 July, this time running to benefit other children in the local area through the fantastic work done by the Town Foundation.
Eleanor comes from a family of Town fans and became aware of the work done by Huddersfield Town’s Official Charity from her dad and grandparents.
During the race, the Foundation’s youngest ever fundraiser will be wearing a tutu and fairy wings!
When signing up for the fun run, Eleanor set out the original goal of raising just three pennies, before agreeing on £200. However, the money raised so far has gone well above their expectations thanks to the generosity of her family and friends and she is now looking to raise £2,000.
To date she has raised £1,400 on her just giving page and you can sponsor her by CLICKING HERE!
When speaking to the Town Foundation, Eleanor said:
“I would like other children to have the same breakfast that I do.
“I have porridge every morning before school and a hot cross bun on weekends as a special treat.”
Town Foundation’s Operations and Events Manager, Julie Sheffield commented:
“What a heart warming story and inspiration young girl Eleanor is!
“It’s incredible that someone that young, first of all, wants to run a 2k fun run, but then also to wants to raise money for the Town Foundation to help other children.
“I’d like to wish Eleanor the best of luck in the fun run and share my thanks for the money she is raising for the Town Foundation.”
