Our Head of Fundraising Barrie Hodge has been training hard these last few months and next week (week commencing April 18th 2016) is set to run 7 Marathons, culminating in the London Marathon on Sunday 24th April!
Barrie is doing this not just to raise funds for St Basils but to raise awareness, and therefore he is completing the Marathons within or between the areas that St Basils operates in, which include Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry, Redditch, Bromsgrove and Kidderminster.
Barrie has run many half-marathons and 3 full marathons before but never consecutive Marathons back to back. He said of the challenge: "Our supporters do all sorts of amazing events and challenges to raise funds for us and I thought it only fair that I take on a tough challenge too."
Barrie plans to track his route using social media and the hashtag #sevenforstbasils. Please retweet his posts so we can raise as much awareness as possible.
