Local man takes on The Wall in aid of hospice

8th July 2019
A Scunthorpe man took on The Wall challenge, attempting to complete the ultra 69 mile marathon across Hadrian's Wall (Carlisle to Gateshead) in aid of his local hospice.
Bryan Moss completed 62 miles of the gruelling challenge after damaging his Achilles tendon just ten miles into the race. He carried on running for a further four miles, before walking the remaining 48 in 19 hours, raising £300 for Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
Bryan said: “This challenge was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, although I didn’t want to stop, the paramedics advised that I wanted to carry on running in the future, I needed to stop.
“My father in law was cared for by the hospice, so I know how important the work they do is to local people and their families.
“Lindsey Lodge Hospice is a vital part of the local community; so I was keen to support the hospice through this difficult challenge.
Lindsey Lodge Hospice fundraiser Peter Dennis said: “On behalf of everyone at Lindsey Lodge Hospice, we’d like to say thank you Bryan for his incredible support and determination, carrying on 52 miles with an injury.
“Every penny he’s raised will go towards ensuring our patients and their families receive our specialist care and services when they need it most.”
