Saturday saw the completion of Marc Ellis 24hr challenge of running around Mowden Park arena in aid of Luke Bell who sadly passed away before Christmas day after a long and brave battle against illness.
Marc, who was given permission from Luke’s parents Mark and Becky for this event to take place, started his journey at 6pm Friday evening supported by many friends and well wishes.
Marc’s fiancée Sharon was there throughout the task which saw him complete over 100miles raising thousands of pounds in the process. Was great to see so many Harriers, Quakers, Triathlete’s and other non club runners turn out to support such an inspirational man.
A fantastic achievement under such sad circumstances by such a kind and humble man. Congratulations Marc and well done to all who supported such a worthy cause. Our thoughts are with Mark, Becky and their family at this time. #TEAMLUKE
