Josie runs over 100 miles for cancer skin charities
Report by Don Hale.
Endurance runner Josie Davies has just completed a gruelling 100.7 miles fundraising challenge for melanoma and skin cancer charities.
North Wales based runner Josie has braved a variety of mixed weather over the past month or so during her runs but remained determined to raise as much money as possible for a cause very close to her heart.
She was relieved however, to finally finish the job, and later confirmed: ‘That’s it all done. Over 100 miles completed in May for and Charities to raise the awareness of melanoma and skin cancer. Thank you to everybody whose sponsored me so far.
‘I am forever grateful as we really need to make people more aware of the devastation of this horrible disease which can just creep up on you when you least expect it. Also PLEASE protect your kids out there and not just in the beautiful weather like today and cover them up.
‘And just today whilst running the Orme I passed one little boy with no top on, and it was boiling hot. We need to protect them as they have no idea of the consequences. Stay safe and enjoy the lovely weather which we’ve been longing for.’
