Rob Runs to Raise funds for Grace House
Rob Stobie is taking part in this year's Great North Run and looking for supporters to help him reach his target of fundraising for Grace House.
Rob said: "Grace House is a fantastic charity that helps to enrich the lives of disabled children, young people, and their families across our region.
"I love running but I’m not a fan of long distances at all, which will make running 13 miles a real challenge for me. Training for longer-distance events takes a lot of commitment and time which can be difficult to balance around being a dad too. I ran a half marathon once before in Lincoln and got a time of 1hr 43mins, afterwards I said I would never do it again. The draw of raising money for such a worthy cause and challenging myself to do something I find difficult and uncomfortable was just too much, so here I am again putting myself where it hurts and hoping to beat the time I set as a younger, fitter version of myself."
"Thanks to everyone who has kindly donated so far, any future donations to this worthy cause are extremely gratefully received."
