As we reported a few weeks ago, life-long Newcastle supporter Josh Bone will be running seven marathons in seven days in early September to raise money for charity.
Josh Bone - after finishing London marathon last year
Josh Bone will attempt to run 7 marathons in 7 days, in honor of his father Ron, who died of cancer last year at the age of 60.
Josh is a 21 year-old lifelong Newcastle fan, and he will be running from London to Paris, and will be raising funds to support two major Cancer Charities, Cancer Research UK and Dorothy House Hospice, and he hopes to raise at least £10K.
Last year, Josh ran the Brighton and London Marathons just one week apart, and only a few months after his father’s death.
He is now winding down his training as he faces the tough challenge from Trafalgar Square in London, to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and it starts next Sunday, 2nd September through Saturday, 8th September.
Josh has been putting in 60 mile weeks in training, and he will be having a blog where you can check up on how he is doing as he runs a marathon a day.
Josh has also set up a text to give page for those wanting to donate faster and without having to fill in all their details, and this can be done by texting LTOP90 and the amount to 70070, and those donations go to Cancer Research UK.
You can also support Josh and the charities he is supporting by donating here.
Please help support Josh if you possibly can, in his brave quest in honor of his father.
