Ade's helping community groups.

Published: 13 October 2015

A PI on the GoWell Research and Learning Programme is trying to raise funds to help the communities he's been studying.

The GoWell Research and Learning Programme is investigating how regeneration programmes impact upon the health and wellbeing of deprived communities in Glasgow.

The programme has been in underway for ten years, funded by The Scottish Government, NHS Health Scotland, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and the Wheatley Housing Group.

Now, one of the Principal Investigators on the Programme has set out to help some of the study communities more directly by raising money for local charities.

Ade Kearns, from Urban Studies, is a late-starter to running and has set himself the challenge of running 25 10k road races over the next two years to raise money for four community groups:

  • 3D Drumchapel
  • Kingsway Court Health &Wellbeing Centre
  • Nan Mackay Community Hall in Pollokshields
  • Rosemount Lifelong Learning Centre in Royston

Ade completed his second race in the Great Scottish Run in Glasgow on 4th October 2015.

If you would like to give Ade your support, and possibly sponsor him (e.g. £1 or £2 per race, for the 25 races), you can contact him here:
