Participants age from three to 90 took part in BAP Shri Swaminarayan Mandir event
Both old and young put their best foot forward by participating in a 10k fun run which raises funds needy children.
Children as young as three through to participants in their 90s took part in the ‘Annual Challenge’ at BAP Shri Swaminarayan Mandir – known as Neasden temple, in Brentfield Road, Neasden.
More than 3,000 people across the UK participated in the run to raise money for BAPS Charities and its national beneficiary partner, KIDS, as well as various other charities and good causes.
Participants were able to run, jog or walk the 10k from the temple to King Edward VII Park in Park Lane, Wembley, where they did two laps before returning back.
Priya Patel, 16, who took part, said: “It was a really nice day and good to see so many people take part and also the local residents waving and smiling us along.
“It really was very rewarding to know that you are doing something good to help children and families not as fortunate as you.”
