An Irish woman living in Doncaster has taken on the Extreme North Quadrathon Challenge and raised £2,224 for our hospice in memory of a former colleague.
Adele Morrin, who is an experienced runner and a member of the Leeds Frontrunners running club, completed four marathons running a total of 104.8 miles in four days our Balby-based hospice.
Adele said: “It was an incredible experience for a very worthwhile cause. I wanted to use my passion for running and do something positive for St John’s Hospice. The team there cared for a dear colleague and I wanted to donate the proceeds of the challenge for others to benefit from the care the hospice provides.”
Andrew Brankin, Service Manager for St John’s Hospice, said: “This is a remarkable achievement and it is first time that I have met someone who has run four marathons in four days. Thank you to Adele. Every penny raised goes to make our patients’ lives more comfortable.”
St John’s Hospice is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).
