Simon’s Wolds marathon for Cancer Research UK

 In Company news, Louth Times

Simon Greenfield, parts advisor at Louth Tractors, is raising the bar even higher to raise money for a cause that’s close to his heart. This time, he will complete an epic marathon which will see him scale the Lincolnshire Wolds to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

In 2019, Simon raised money for the charity by growing a beard for 6 months, dyeing it pink and shaving it off at Louth Tractors HQ, and through Louth Tractors ‘Log Splitting Live’ event in November. He managed to raise nearly £4,000 in 2019!

Starting at Horncastle, and using local landmarks of personal interest, the marathon will take him through the villages of Hemmingby, Goulceby, through Donington, through Cadwell and finally back to Louth.

The run is 26.2 miles, which is a full marathon length, and Simon is currently in training for the event which will take place on 25th October 2020.

“I support Cancer Research UK because I sadly lost my mum to the disease. The run will include landmarks that were personal to my mum and I, and if the money I raise can help save a life it’s worthwhile,” says Simon.

“Louth Run For Life will be supporting my efforts, following me with a back-up vehicle and plenty of water!”

All money raised through Simon’s JustGiving page goes to the charity, so please support the cause here if you can.
