Three-year-old ran 3k obstacle race
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.”
