Three-year-old ran 3k ob­sta­cle race

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A gen­er­ous young Ruther­glen lad has raised £500 for his nurs­ery af­ter their gar­den shed was burned down.

Lo­gan Em­mott (3) at­tends Ace Place Nurs­ery in Cam­bus­lang, and, like all of his fel­low nurs­ery pupils, was dev­as­tated when fire-rais­ers burned down their gar­den shed in Fe­bru­ary.

All the chil­dren’s out­door toys were wrecked in the process.

So lit­tle Lo­gan de­cided to take part in the Tar­tan War­rior Fam­ily Ob­sta­cle Race, a 3k race which took place on April 25 in Plean Coun­try Park.

He com­pleted the course along with mum Vicki and aunty Mary.

As part of the course, con­tes­tants had to climb mon­key bars, climb a wall, go un­der a cargo net, walk through a stream and flip a mini tyre.

As proud mum Vicki ex­plains, Lo­gan did his nurs­ery and spon­sors proud:“He kept run­ning the whole way through, he said he wanted to do well for the peo­ple who spon­sored him.”

In fact, Lo­gan liked it so much he now at­tends ob­sta­cle course train­ing once a week.

And Leeaanne King, who works at Ace Place, says ev­ery­one is thank­ful to the gen­er­ous wee boy: “We didn’t ex­pect him to raise nearly as much as he did, he did so well.

“Some of us went along to see him on the day and you could see the ex­cite­ment in his face dur­ing the warm up.

“We’re all very thank­ful to him, he’s a very kind hearted wee boy.”
