Local man raises money for Northampton refuge with 24 hour challenge

Posted: 10/12/14 by eve

Nene Valley Christian Family Refuge (NVCFR Ltd), a Northampton-based charity working with women and children fleeing domestic abuse, is celebrating after a member of the public raised money for the charity by completing a 24 hour run.

Steve Heighway raised £566 for NVCFR by doing a sponsored 24 hour run on a circular route with very short stops for food and drink. He ran a total of 75 miles over the 24 hour period.

Christine Morgan, CEO at NVCFR, said: “It rained constantly throughout the first day and although it cleared the second day, the course was an absolute mudbath! Steve’s amazing effort in really difficult circumstances is a lesson to us all to persevere when the going gets tough. If you would like to fundraise on our behalf, please contact us on 01604 230588.”
