More than £2,000 has been raised for charity by Maidenhead town manager Steph James after completing a 52-mile ultra-marathon.
Steph ran the gruelling Evesham Ultra Marathon last month in aid of the #fightforgeorge campaign that is raising funds for George Ferriman, three, who has acute myeloid leukaemia and who is the son of a running friend,
The 33-year-old’s current fundraising total is £2,369, more than double the £1,000 she initially set out to raise. The funds will be donated to CLIC Sargent, a charity supporting the Ferriman family.
Steph said: “I’m really chuffed at the support from everyone and I know locally there’s been so much awareness of the campaign and what he’s going through.
“A big thank you to everyone.”
