Emma Reynolds, Labour MP for Wolverhampton North East, went along to celebrate the collective achievements of pupils from across the city who were taking part in ‘Go Run For Free’. Go Run For Free is a national initiative supported by schools, the city council and many other partners. It aims to inspire children to be more active through well-organised running events. Children from primary schools across Wolverhampton were competing in lots of different activities.

Emma said, “It was lovely to join the Mayor of Wolverhampton, councillors and others in seeing so many youngsters taking part and clearly having such a great time. I watched children from Rakegate Primary school in my constituency, who took part in a one mile run and they looked to be having a great time.

“The event was supported by pupils from secondary schools who have taken up leadership roles for the campaign, including some from schools in my constituency, Our Lady and St Chad Catholic Sports College; Ormiston NEW Academy; Coppice Performing Arts; Heath Park; Aldersley and Westcroft.

“Many congratulations to the organisers but especially to the young people taking part, who knows, they may yet be the sporting stars of the future.”
