Harry, who has cerebral palsy, began his 26-day marathon challenge on the 1 March and has raised £6400 for Lymphoma Action.  It is a cause close to Harry’s heart after his mum, Mel, received a diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma in 2007.

'I wanted to give back to a charity who help people like my amazing mum' says Harry. 'It was a big challenge for me, as I get tired quite easily and can find walking painful after a while, but I was determined to walk the distance each day.'

'We want to say a huge congratulations to Harry' says Sarah Thorn, Partnerships Manager at Lymphoma Action. 'He really is an inspirational young man. Everyone in our team has been cheering him on - he really is a superhero!'

'We are so grateful to Harry for raising such an amazing amount to support our work in providing vital information and support to those affected by lymphoma' she continues. 'Through funds raised by people like Harry, we can continue making sure that no one has to face lymphoma alone.'
