DNF’s Great North Challenge Raises Vital Funds

A County Durham’s asset finance brokerage Great North Run inspired challenge has helped raise over £500 for local charity, The Clarke Lister Brain Haemorrhage Foundation.

Staff from Peterlee-based Dealer Net Finance were due to take part in the 2020 Great North Run.
But after it’s cancellation earlier this year due to Covid-19, the team decided to carry on and push their running ability by taking part in two new challenges.

Kavan Young and Sam Musgrave took part in the Great North Run Solo challenge which celebrated what would have been the 40th running of the famous race, by running 40 separate runs over 78 days. The pair covered over 300 miles between them for the challenge.

And as if that were not enough, they finished their challenge on what would have been the day of the Great North Run by running the half-marathon distance of 13.1 mile.

Kavan said: “With the Great North Run cancelled, our bodies initially had a sigh of relief, but we were deeply concerned that this great local charity we were running for would miss out on some vital funding this year through the run.

“Me and Sam decided to push ourselves and take part in the Great North Run Solo challenge to help raise some money for The Clarke Lister Brain Haemorrhage Foundation.

“It was a tough push and our bodies certainly felt it, but we have been overwhelmed by people’s generosity in what is a tough time for everyone by helping us raise over £500.

“We hope this amount can help the charity over the next few months, and we will all be keeping our fingers crossed that we will be lining up on the start line in Newcastle next September to take part in the real Great North Run in 2021.”
