STV Appeal 5K

Yes - it's a last minute plug for my 5K. Here is my initial statement...
Lord Provost of Edinburgh - STV Appeal 5K
I am absolutely delighted to be taking part in this year’s STV Appeal. Poverty amongst children is unacceptable in this day and age, so it’s great to be able to contribute to such a worthwhile caus...e making a difference to the lives of young people across Scotland, including Edinburgh.

Next weekend I will be taking on my first 5km run, it has been a long term ambition of mine to participate in a race like this, and doing it on behalf of the STV Appeal gives me a goal to aim for.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get fit and at the same time support an outstanding cause. I would greatly appreciate any donations in support of the STV Appeal. 
I can assure you I am taking it very seriously and did eight and a half K round Holyrood Park this morning. I even went up over the Craggs! I have to admit this was hard but will make the actual run seem a lot easier. The view is stunning.
