Market Deeping fundraiser takes on burpee challenge for Bone Cancer Research Trust




A determined fundraiser is taking on a second gruelling challenge for charity .

In February George Martin ran 100 miles for the Bone Cancer Research Trust while wearing a variety of eccentric outfits to encourage people to donate.

After raising more than £1,170 - which he believes is down to his willingness to don a mankini and a dragon costume - George decided to take on a new challenge. Like last time, he will be letting people choose his outfits as he reaches new milestones.

During April, George will try to carry out more than 2,000 burpees - exhausting squat thrusts that start and finish in a standing position.

“I’m feeling all right about what’s ahead,” said George. “February’s running challenge made me fitter.”

George, who lives in Market Deeping, is supporting Bone Cancer Research, a charity which funds research, raises awareness of the disease, provides patient information and offers support.

George said “It wasn’t that I had an ignorance of bone cancer but I had never really looked into it. When I did it opened my eyes to how bad it really is, so raising any money we can is great as it is an absolutely fantastic charity.”
