Jazmine can't wait to take
on obstacles for R Charity
HOLLYOAKS star Jazmine Franks will be
among the hundreds of people taking part in a 5k obstacle course for R Charity.
Jazmine, who plays Esther Bloom in the popular Channel 4 soap, is taking to the
obstacle course in aid of R Charity's £10million appeal for the new Royal
Liverpool University Hospital. The Gung Ho! event will also raise funds for
Alder Hey Children's Charity.
The 5k Gung Ho! inflatable obstacle course; which includes a huge 170ft slide;
will take over Aintree Racecourse on Saturday, 29 August 2015. R Charity's £10million
Appeal will raise vital funds for ground breaking services in the new Royal,
including three new mammography units and a new x-ray scanner to help in the
early detection of breast cancer.
Jazmine, 23, from Bury, says she jumped at the chance to take on the Total
Wipe out style course. "I can't wait to take part; it's going to be so
much fun. I don't think I've even ran five kilometres before so for my first one
to be filled with giant obstacles is going to be interesting; I'll just be
laughing my way round the racecourse.
Although I'm not from Liverpool, I really feel a part of this City; the new
Royal will help to provide the highest quality of care to the people of
Merseyside. If you're not taking part, then come down and watch anyway as
it promises to be a really fun way to spend your Bank Holiday weekend!"
Loren Slade, events fundraiser for R Charity, added:- "It's great that Jazmine and so many others are taking on Gung Ho! for R Charity and helping us
to reach our £10million target. You don't have to be super fit or a thrill
seeker to raise money for the new hospital. Get in touch with the fundraising
team for more ideas on what you can do."
