Dave Fletcher, a 5x Cancer Survivor will be running 40 miles on his 40th birthday (Thursday 23rd November) to raise funds for the “Living with & Beyond Cancer Garden Project”.
As a past student of Goxhill Primary School, he wanted to run by the school during his latest challenge. Part of his aim in succeeding this challenge, alongside the fundraising, is to promote health and wellbeing in the young.
Dave will be leaving my home in Swanland and starting the challenge at 7:45,then should get to the Humber bridge car park around 8:15, they will be running past The George Hotel in Barton and to St Peter’s school about 9, then through Barrow and getting to Goxhill school just after 10. Back through Barrow and onto Baysgarth school in Barton 11:15, Humber bridge car park 12, hopefully getting to Haltemprice roundabout 12:15ish, down Willerby Road and reaching the Priory pub at 13:00, down spring bank to the Spring bank Tavern about 13:30, go past Banks Harbour public house then onto Sutton village and reaching Neesden school 14:45, Diadem Grove roundabout at 15:15 and finally finishing at Radio Humberside studios at 16:00 .
Dave and his brother Rob are running the full route with cyclists and runners joining them at various places to run a bit with them.
The garden will be designed so it is accessible to all users, such as wheel chairs, walking sticks, hospital beds and those that are able to walk
unaided. We have been quoted approx. £20, 000 to get the garden done and designed, it’s a big expense but will last forever and so many will benefit from using the garden.
