Last weekend, one of our newest Chamber Members, Liverpool Food Tours MD, Gareth Boyd, covered almost 92 miles by foot over a 24 hour period.
Gareth was running/walking for two local charities – The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity & The Bluecoat
Gareth said: “I’m delighted to be able to support these 2 worthwhile charities. I love running and this 24 hour challenge seemed the perfect way to try and raise support. Thank you to everyone who has supported me to date.”
To date Gareth has raised almost £1000.
Gareth started the 24 hour challenge at 9am Saturday 3rd July, only stopping for quick food/toilet breaks, and he had reached 50 miles by late afternoon. ‘Frustratingly’, Gareth reported, the running turned to walking during the evening and heading into the early hours of Sunday morning he was down to a slow stroll. He didn’t stop though, and whilst he was disappointed not to exceed 100 miles, he was pleased to complete the challenge and raise worthwhile funds.
Well done Gareth, don’t be too downhearted it was an awesome effort and a fantastic sum raised for two great charities. Congratulations!
