Danny, a sailor from Humber, is undertaking the epic feat to raise funds for the CatZero charity which delivers programmes to meet the needs of children, young people and their families, helping with employment, education and training.

The route will take him into London, through Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire. He will then run into Grimsby to visit CatZero’s south Humber headquarters at the Digital Hub on Freeman Street on October 1. The following day, October 2, Danny will continue his journey, crossing the Humber Bridge to finish at the CatZero offices at Hull Marina.

Keeping up the pace of at least 26.2-miles every day, he will run into North Yorkshire, Teesside, cross the border into Scotland and up to John O’Groats to finish on Thursday October 22. The total run is almost 800-miles.

“The ability for CatZero to help people on both sides of the Humber effect lasting personal change has been proven since our launch 11 years ago with hundreds of people of all ages and abilities assisted back into long-term employment or training,” said Danny.

“Such support will be needed more than ever in the coming months and years as people face uncertain times in many areas of their lives.”
