Gscene’s very own Craig’s 2020 challenge for Terrence Higgins Trust is now complete. Craig ran an impressive 144.4 miles over 20 days to raise money for those living with HIV with additional mental health challenges. Following the challenge Craig said “my thanks to every individual who has supported me over the past three weeks in whatever way they could, to complete the challenge. It has been as emotionally testing as it has physical and I couldn’t have completed it without the kind words, motivational encouragement and of course the sponsorship”
Craig finished the final stretch in fishnets after a friend offered to double her £50 sponsorship commitment if he did so. You can donate here:
After completing the challenge Craig extended his thanks: “To my HIV+ friends, brothers, siblings whose daily determination and vitality for life is forever an inspiration. To those who are not here to tell their stories, we honour you and I ran for you every step. To those living and struggling, stick with it, we have your back.
But finally: to all those who have lived the HIV/AIDS journey past, present and future. The doctors, nurses, research teams, receptionists, health care workers, charity fundraisers, anti stigma campaigners, outreach workers, caring friends, partners and relatives. You are angels amongst us”.
Craig’s Just Giving sponsorship page is still open for donations so please be generous.
