Maddie Wall, the daughter of security cloud monitoring specialist Webeye’s global sales director Mark Wall, has committed to running five miles every day for 28 days in aid of NHS Charities Together.
At just 13 years old, Maddie began her challenge on 19 April with the intention of raising £500 for the NHS official charity organisation. By the halfway point, Maddie had smashed her target, raising an impressive £2,725.
A keen fundraiser, Maddie recently completed the ‘Brave the Shave’ challenge, duly raising £1,200 for Macmillan Cancer Support. She’s a keen cyclist, but until now has never attempted to run more than a circuit of the local park.
Proud dad Mark is actively supporting Maddie. He told Security Matters: “Maddie took this challenge upon herself and, before we knew it, had set up a GoFundMe page and was ready for her first run. She’s fully committed and we are really proud of how much she has already raised in support of our incredible NHS staff, enabling them to do so much more to protect lives at this uncertain time.”
NHS Charities Together is a membership organisation representing, supporting and championing the work of the NHS’ official charities. It’s currently focusing on supporting NHS Staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients, raising over £80,000,000 to date.
