We are so impressed by the challenge that 9 year old Grace Clewes has set herself. Not only is she working towards her Cub Scouts personal challenge badge, she has decided to raise money for the NECCR in the process. Her initial fundraising goal was a fantastic £100, but she has surpassed the total by 220%!!
Grace explains “I have set a goal to run 100km before I am 10 (in July)”. Her ambitious running total will be reached by attending regular organised runs and training with Gateshead Harriers. She has also signed up for this year’s Children’s Cancer Run and has a place with the Junior Great North Run.
Her distance total currently stands at 32k and we all want to wish Grace well with the ongoing challenge. You can follow Our fundraiser of the months’ progress and regular updates on her Just Giving page:
