Dan’s heroic 140 – mile run for Milton Keynes Hospital Charity

Vanessa Holmes | Mar 2019

On Saturday 6th April brave fundraiser Dan will be setting off on an epic 140-mile challenge in memory of his Mum and to raise money for Milton Keynes Hospital Charity.

Dan’s challenge will see him running from Wollaston in Shropshire, through Wollaston in the West Midlands and finishing off at Wollaston in his hometown of Northamptonshire.

The route will cover 140 miles of quiet roads and cross country, taking in parts of the Grand Union Canal.

Dan will be raising money for the respiratory department at Milton Keynes University Hospital to say thank you for the care his Mum received, as well as the Daylight Centre Fellowship.

Dan said: “My Mum spent a lot of time in MKUH as she battled with Rheumatoid Arthritis over a period of many years. The support given to my Mum was incredible and I would like to give something back in memory of her. This is the hardest challenge I have taken on so far and I will be running, jogging, and even crawling the miles; supported by my mate Stuart who will be riding his bike and carrying the supplies!”
