Shoreham boy’s February run raises more than £15,000

A Shoreham boy who linked up with The Run Bible for a charity challenge in February has now raised more than £15,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Ten-year-old Harry Stoner set out to run 56 miles in a month, aiming for two miles a day, supported by his mum Kelly Marshall, step-dad Simon Herriott and little sister Evie Herriott.

He was determined to support the cancer charity after Evie was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, and his challenge was picked up and supported by The Run Bible.

The total raised so far is £15,421, which includes money raised on JustGiving and on Facebook, plus money sent directly to the charity, like the £5,000 pledged by Legal & General after Simon completed the challenge.

Kelly said: “Overall, Harry completed 64 miles. Some days be found it hard, especially in the bad weather and snow we had in February, but he was determined to complete it for Evie.

“Some days we were going out in the morning and then again in the evening. It was harder than we thought, and there was the consistency of making it happen every day for 28 days.

“Once he had completed the 56 miles, he wanted to see how many more he could get to and managed another eight on top of the original target. We are incredibly proud of what he has achieved.”
