Security specialist’s daughter sets herself 140-mile running challenge for NHS

Maddie Wall, daughter of Webeye’s Global Sales Director, Mark Wall, has committed to running five miles a day for 28 days in aid of NHS Charities Together.

MarkWall-MaddieWall-Charity-20At 13 years old, Maddie commenced her challenge on 19 April 2020 with the intention of raising £500 for the NHS official charity organisation. By her halfway point, Maddie had smashed her target, raising an impressive £2,725.

As a keen fundraiser, Maddie recently completed the ‘brave the shave’ challenge, raising £1,200 for Macmillan Cancer Support. She is a keen cyclist but has never attempted to run more than ‘round a park’ before.

As a proud dad, Mark supports Maddie on her runs. He added: “Maddie took this upon herself and before we knew it had set up a gofundme page and was ready for her first run. She is 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 is currently focussing on supporting NHS Staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients, raising over £80,000,000 to date.
