Dream Mile

Chris Jewell, local co-ordinator for Dreams Come True said

"We are very grateful to all who came out to run a mile and those who supported our runners. We had a fantastic afternoon... one of the highlights was our motorised scooter mile as well as our ‘tiny tots’ run, and there were medals for the top three in all our races. Mascot Polo from Inverclyde Leisure Centre was on hand, along with Mickey and Minnie Mouse to cheer on the runners. Alongside the Dream Mile our come and try short tennis was busy all afternoon with youngsters and some adults having fun on the grass.

Huge thanks are due to Inverclyde Leisure and Inverclyde Athletics Club for helping to organise the event, to all the dancers and helpers from the May Hughes School of Dancing who contributed so much to the afternoon, to Inverclyde Council on Disability for the provision of the motorised scooters, to Mike McLean from Your Radio for compering the event, to our photographer Paul Tipping and to all the other volunteers who gave up their time to make it run so smoothly."

While we do not yet have a total, hundreds of pounds would have been raised to help make more dreams happen for Inverclyde children and young people with life-limiting medical conditions. We are actively looking to make more dreams come true in Scotland and would encourage those who want to make a dream happen for a youngster to get in touch with us.
