Our General Manager Lee Middleton is raising money for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital by competing in this years Great Manchester Half Marathon.
Lee is a fitness fanatic and regularly attends his local boxing club Eccles Boxing School where he not only takes part in the general fitness sessions with other regular keep fitters, he loves nothing more than getting inside the boxing ring and having sparring matches with all the young boxers. (He must be mad).
Lee is also an avid 10k runner and has participated in the Great Manchester 10k run for the past 4 years, where he has fundraised for The British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK. He wanted to set himself a new challenge this year, so he decided to take part in his first Half Marathon which is a big step up in distance from his usual 10k runs.
Lee, said "The Royal Manchester Children's Hospital charity is a fantastic cause as it is a hospital that is dedicated to helping poorly children. I spent time in here as a kid and so did my eldest son when he was about 4 years old, so I thought it fitting to raise money for such a great local charity."
The locals in his home town of Eccles in Manchester may see Lee every Friday evening pounding the pavements in preparation for the half marathon on Sunday 19th May 2019.
