Shelton Sports Fundraising for DBCSG

 Posted: September 24, 2011

 

Shelton Sports committee members Paul Massey, Bryan Massey and Gareth Richards signed up to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK. The group was set up in 2006 and had raised £9,776 through various events including football matches against ex-Rams players.

 

Events organiser Paul, of Derby, said he had a fantastic day and was pleased to raise £700. He said: "It was Bryan's first-ever half marathon and he completed it in one hour, 58 minutes, while Gareth recorded a personal
best-time of one hour, 29 minutes, and finished inside the first 700 runners.

 

"I did a personal worst time of two hours and 48 mins after picking up a knee injury at eight miles. I was on the television, jogging past two penguins. They did eventually pass me before the finish but I managed to hold off Mickey Mouse in the last 100 metres."

£1,258.00 was donated to the Derby Breast Cancer Support Group, of which Paul's wife Jackie is a member.
