Intrepid adventurer, primary school teacher, and charity fund-raiser extraordinaire Steve Hill MBE is preparing for another mammoth challenge this coming weekend - running more than 26 miles around the streets of Oldham!
Oldhamer Steve, who has raised over £100,000 for a huge range of charities over the past few years, will this weekend raise vital funds for his Team Hill Charitable Trust, which is helping make a difference for the local community during the Coronavirus crisis.
Steve, who works at St Joseph's School in Shaw, told us: "I was supposed to have been running in the London Marathon 2020 this weekend.
"As that event has now been postponed because of the Coronavirus I have decided that this Sunday (April 26) - the day I should have been in the capital - I will run my own London Marathon around where I live in Moorside.
"This will help keep up our fundraising momentum for the Team Hill Charitable Trust as we all continue to help make a difference for our Oldham community during these unprecedented times.
"I'd like to thank everyone, as always, for their continued support."
