Running challenge for Friends of BCH supporter

on .

Roger in the Olympic Stadium compressedA big thank you to Roger Platt for taking part in the Great Newham London Run to raise funds for Friends of BCH. Here is Roger's account of his journey.

'In July 2015, my wife and I went to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to support our younger son (24 years old) who participated in the Great Newham London Run. This event is an annual 10k event finishing with a lap of the Olympic Stadium. It got me thinking - 10k is not that far and I'll only be 58 in July 2016. After all, I had previously completed a 10 mile run - does 30 years make that much difference? Also, I needed to lose some weight and improve my general fitness. So I took the plunge and entered.
