Ben Blowes runs 31 Marathons in 31 days for Tom's Trust
This year has been a tough year for us all. The Pandemic has ripped through our society, affecting our businesses and changing our lives in a way no one could have thought imaginable less than a year ago.
31 Marathons in 31 Days for Tom's Trust
When we found out that Guinness World Record holder Ben Blowes was planning to run a whopping 31 Marathons in 31 Days all through December to raise £31,000 to fund vital mental health support and care for 31 children and their families coping with brain tumours, we just had to get involved.
Tom’s Trust was founded by Deborah and Andrew Whiteley after their son Tom sadly passed away from a brain tumour when he was only 9 years old.
Throughout Tom's journey Debs and Tom regularly found themselves completely unsupported and alone, particularly with regards to their emotional and mental health, so when Tom died, they vowed to ensure no other family would suffer in the same way.
Tom's Trust helps to fund the work of Clinical Psychologists who support children who are diagnosed with brain tumours and their families, to improve their quality of life, mental health and wellbeing.
Look out for our Sponsored Super Pledge Day on Christmas Day - when Ben will be running his 25th Marathon for in memory of Tom, Debs (Founder of Tom’s Trust) and Andrew Whiteley’s son, who very sadly lost his brave battle to a brain tumour when he was only 9 years old in 2010.
Mind. Blown. 🏃♂️
Good luck Ben! 😀
