At the start of January, Richard Newbigin challenged himself to raise money for Frimley Park Hospital doing the Dopey Challenge. Richard completed the 5k on the Thursday morning, a 10k on the Friday morning, a half marathon on the Saturday morning and if that wasn’t enough a full marathon on the Sunday morning!
“Rather hard but am happy to have completed it. With the temperature at 29c and humidity up at 98%, almost a third of the marathon runners where pulled off for safety and speed reasons. I’ve been able to raise £200!
My children also ran a ‘kids dash’! They are the reason I run, so was great to see them doing the same.
I felt that after Frimley Park had looked after my family and I over the years, it was about time I give back to the amazing staff and a truly wonderful hospital.
Thanks again for the support”.
Richard’s Just Giving page is still open and not too late to donate….
