Wisbech teen calls for support as he heads down the final straight of 260 mile charity run




Fundraising teen James Hall is urging people to get behind him as he runs into the final lap of his marathon fundraising challenge.

James Hall, 14, from Wisbech took part in the 2.6 challenge to help raise money of NHS Charities Together, by attempting to complete 260 miles in 2.6 months and he is now within 36 miles of completing the challenge, which he began on May 1.

He has been both pounding the streets of Wisbech and also running on a treadmill and he has calculated that the 260 miles target is the equivalent of running from Wisbech to Buckingham Palace and back.

The 2.6 challenge was launched in the wake of the cancellation of the London Marathon which traditionally raises £100,000s for a huge array of charities.

James said he had chosen NHS Charities Together because the "NHS is always there for us and I feel we should give something back during this difficult time".

He set a target of £2,600 but is currently nearly £1,200 shy of that is urging people to get behind him and sponsor him as he runs the final miles.
