CALLUM Hynd, aged 33 from Harlow, is set to run the Loch Ness Marathon in aid of local charity, St Clare Hospice, and in memory and honour of beloved uncle, John Hobbs.
On Sunday 24 September 2017 at 10am, runners will set off from the start line for the marathon-distance run around the renowned Loch Ness of Scotland and its surrounding countryside.
Callum was inspired to take on the challenge after John sadly passed away at the hospice in March, 2017, to help to raise awareness of the Hastingwood-based charity.
Commenting on the marathon, and reflecting on the care that John and his family received from St Clare, Callum said: “After taking up running a few years ago, I decided to do some challenges every year. I completed my first marathon last year and was pleased to raise over £750 for another charity close to my heart. This year, after sadly losing John, it was a no-brainer that I had to do something for St Clare after the invaluable care and continued support for the family.”
Callum continued: “St Clare Hospice was so supportive of John and the family. I just want to take this opportunity to give a little back to the charity, and help to raise awareness of the excellent work they do – day in and day out. I’m feeling very excited and confident about the race and after 6 months of training I can’t believe it’s finally here! Every step for our Uncle John will be an honour.”
Callum is aiming to raise as much as possible for St Clare Hospice. If you would like to sponsor him, and help to raise vital funding for St Clare, please visit his fundraising page at: http://bit.ly/2gKKEBB
