Daniel's Done It! He Ran A Marathon to Raise Funds For Kids Run Free!
Daniel Willis has been attending the Leamington Spa Kids Run Free events for two years now. Daniel recently set himself the amazing challenge of running a marathon during December to raise money for Kids Run Free. We will be using the funds to inspire more children to adopt an active and healthy lifestyle by providing fun, accessible running events.
At 6 years old, he is our youngest ever fundraiser and we have been so impressed at his dedication in reaching his goal - he ran his marathon in the amazing time of 6 hours, 10 minutes and 57 seconds!
Daniel discovered his love of running through the Kids Run Free events. He first started running 100m races, but now regularly runs 3k on a Saturday morning with us. Daniel was inspired by the Marathon Kids programme which is delivered into schools by Kids Run Free, where children aim to complete a marathon by running laps that build up over the school year to cover the distance run in a marathon. He decided to increase the challenge and run his marathon over the course of a month. Go Daniel - we are so proud that you reached your target!
