A FORMER Wolves and Shrewsbury town player is set to take on the Oswestry 10k challenge this October.

Dave Edwards will be taking on Adrenaline Sporting Events’ contest to raise money and awareness for the Little Rascals Foundation.

Little Rascals is a small, local, not-for-profit organisation based in Shrewsbury, that provides care, services, funds and equipment to children with disabilities and their families.


Dave is now appealing to raise funds for them, and he did so with a post on Instagram.

In the video he said: “They are extremely close to my heart and every penny raised will help develop our already amazing holiday clubs.

“I’ve never run a 10k race before, and I am a bit nervous about it but I have set myself a 44-minute target.

“If you could support it I would be so grateful.”

To excite people to take part Dave has also put a £2 submission fee to win a four ball at either Shrewsbury Golf Club or Caernarfon Golf Club.

The Little Rascals provide holiday clubs specifically designed for children with SEND (special educational needs) as well as SEND-specific play sessions within its play centre.

They also take children out and about in the community taking part in a variety of activities giving them a chance to learn new skills and socialise away from their families.
