John Franksen’s 60km for Winston’s Wish this weekend

One of our Members is running 12 different parkrun courses this weekend in aid of Winston’s Wish for bereaved children.
His message is below if you feel like making a donation.

Over this weekend of 4-5th September I am undertaking a running challenge across twelve local parkrun courses. I am raising funds for Winston’s Wish for bereaved children, which is a nominated charity for my Rotary Club this year.
I start at Chipping Sodbury event at 9am on 4/9 and run the 5km course. I then move on to courses at Wotton, Pomphrey hill, Mallards Pike, Lydney and Little Stoke. That concludes day one having run a total of 30km. I will be driven between the courses, not running! I may do Thornbury course at the end of day one to get ahead for day two, depends how I feel.
Day two covers courses at Cirencester, Tetbury, Stroud, Stonehouse, Thornbury and Berkeley.
Another 30km giving 60 km over the weekend, because I turned 60 in July. Hence 60km at 60!
I would be grateful for any publicity you could provide please. The link to my fundraising page is below.
