I am more than happy to help Newcastle supporter Josh Bone in every way I can, as he attempts to run 7 marathons in 7 days, in honor of his father Ron, who died of cancer last year at age 60.
Josh Bone – 5 minutes after finishing the London marathon last year
Hey – who’s that sponsor?
Josh is a 21 year-old lifelong Newcastle fan, and an avid reader of this blog, and he lost his father Ron, who was aged only 60, when Ron sadly finally lost his fight with cancer last year.
And in honor of his father, and to aid two Cancer charities, Josh will be running 7 marathons in 7 days in early September.
Last year, Josh ran the Brighton and London Marathons just one week apart, and only a few months after his father’s death.
This year Josh hopes to complete this gruelling seven step challenge from Trafalgar Square in London, to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, from Sunday, 2nd September to Saturday, 8th September.
I know that money is very tight these days, with the state of the economy and everything – but if you can possibly donate to this cause please do so HERE.
We will do everything we can to help Josh achieve his goals in early September.
Thanks for supporting Josh in his brave and courageous efforts.
