AMAZING CHARITY ATHLETE COMES TO SANDERSONS BOUTIQUE!

8 September 2021

 Charity runner William Goodge is running a whopping 48 marathons across the 48 English counties in just 30 days finishing with the London Marathon on the 3rd of October in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support.

 

This challenge is being taken on by Goodge in honor of his mother Amanda who tragically died of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2018. With a target of £48,000, all money raised will go to Macmillan in support of the wonderful nurses who helped Amanda while she was in Hospital.   

 

William took on the Yorkshire leg of his challenge today (8th September), finished at Fox Valley in North Sheffield. Fox Valleys independent department store, Sandersons Boutique, are one of William’s marathon sponsors.

 

On completing the challenge, William will have run over 1257 miles in just 30 days, achieving a new world record.

Will commented “Running became my therapy, with the happiest memory of my life being in August 2017. I never ran, I hated it, but decided to go for one for no reason at all. When I got back mum called and said she was in remission, the best feeling of my life. When she passed 5 months later, I dealt with it by running and I still do.”

“All the money raised throughout my 48/30 challenge will go directly to Macmillan Cancer Support, who have done so much to help our family. I’m really grateful to all of my sponsors, including Sandersons, who are helping me achieve my target of £48,000”.

Sandersons Boutique are sponsoring one of Wills 48 marathons and were there to cheer him as he crossed today’s finish line outside of their Fox Valley store.
