The GoodGym pairs runners with isolated less-mobile people in their area. Runners jog to their house, deliver something nice, have a brief chat and are on their way again. It helps people get fit by providing a good reason to go for a run and it helps the person being visited by providing them with some friendly human contact and a newspaper or piece of fruit. Timing is up to the runner and the person they are visiting. Usually after work and weekends work best. Runners have to commit to at least one run per week.
