There is a buzz at Greenhous Volvo on Featherbed Lane in Shrewsbury as Steve Jones, service advisor, starts the countdown to his appearance in this years’ race on Tyneside on the 11th September. Steve is running in support of the charity ‘Children with Cancer UK’ and is looking forward to the challenge.

Speaking about the event, Steve says: “I only took up running 2 years ago and I have been in training properly since January, when I entered for the race.  I have friends and relatives who have had the pain of dealing with a child with cancer and so I felt it was a worthy cause to support.

“I entered the Shrewsbury Half marathon and the 10Km race this year to give me experience of running the distances, and also to get a feel for what it is like to run in a crowd. I am running with my brother-in-law who ran in last years’ Great North Run.”

Steve has set himself a modest total of £250 to raise for the charity and has a charity giving page which will receive donations.  Please support Steve if you can.
