|Good Gym||Somerset House, Strand WC2R 1LA||London||51.511059||-0.117148||UK||#FF4646||https://www.goodgym.org/|
We get fit by doing good in the following three ways, through mission runs, coach runs and group runs. In mission runs we run to help out older people with one-off practical tasks that they are no longer able to do on their own. Missions give us a reason to run different routes and make a big impact on someone's life too. In coach runs we run to make social visits to isolated older people who we call ‘our coaches’, they motivate us to keep going. In group runs we run in groups to do physical tasks for community organizations. We're open in 39 areas all across the UK, from Barnet to York.
