Dr Stewart Sale, our Business Development and Product Manager, recently completed a 24 hour solo run to raise money for Midlands based cancer charity – Edgar’s Gift. (www.edgarsgift.org.uk)
He ran a total of 100km at the Equinox 24 at Belvoir Castle, in Leicestershire. Last year, Stewart started his journey with a 50 mile run in a 9 hour period and raised £285!
Edgar’s Gift is a charity that supports young adults with cancer between the ages of 18-30. The charity aims to provide wishes and holidays to individuals to help them during their cancer treatment.
Stewart shares his experience below and what the charity means to him:
“I have been a Patron for the charity for over 4 years now and it’s amazing the work they do to support young adults with cancer. By taking part in my fundraising events I know the money I raise goes directly to sponsoring a wish or contributing to a holiday which really makes a huge difference”
Appleton Woods’ MD, Chris Brown commented on Stewart’s efforts…
‘Congratulations to Stewart from the whole team at Appleton Woods on completing 62 miles during his 24 hour, super-human run, raising money for Edgar’s gift charity. A great effort for a very worthwhile cause. Well done!’
