My Activity Tracking


My target 62 mi

I'm fundraising for a great cause!

Out of every 100 people in the UK, how many do you think live with a disability? The answer is 22. More than one in five. Join me in helping Henshaws offer support, advice and training to enable these people and their families to build skills, develop confidence, help each other and look forward to a more positive future.

I’ve accepted this challenge to run 10k for 10 whole days to help change lives. Please make a donation to support my challenge. Thank you so much!

When 60k became 70k

60k. Tick!

Friday 25th Sep
Right, so 40k to go then! 🏃 Pretty chuffed I've nailed 60k so far. Although still a way off my fundraising target. Please. If you can. Spur me on!

Day 2 of #HenshawsHundreds. Tick!

Friday 18th Sep
So I was a little nervous about my x10 10k runs, and thought the easiest thing would be to just throw myself in. So I did, and I've started early. Day 1 and day 2 are over and done with. The sun shone and my legs ached. Even my glasses look tired in this picture!

Joining hundreds doing their hundreds...

Thursday 3rd Sep
Last year, me and my dad took part in the Vale of York Half Marathon, and I was so chuffed we did it. And not just that we did it, but that we did it together. We survived to tell the tale, and this year we are taking on a new challenge and raising money for Henshaws as part of Henshaws Hundreds this September. Our plan - me in Knaresborough and him in Middlesbrough so 50 miles of social distance to keep us safe - is to do 10k every day for 10 days from 21-30 September. 100k. In 10 days. Ouch. The thought even hurts.

Thank you to my Sponsors
