Mark’s April Charity Challenge

2nd May 2019

Mark’s April Charity Challenge

The head of the UK’s largest network of accredited SMART vehicle paint repairers, Mark Llewellyn has been running in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA). He covered over 150 miles.

His job takes him all  over the UK visiting Revive! franchisees and suppliers, so wherever he went during this month he made sure he packed his trainers and running gear.

Mark said:

"As a company giving back is very important to us, and to date we have raised over £25,000 for Children’s cancer charities and Motor Neurone Disease Association. 

I have always enjoyed running and am back into it again after a couple of years out because of injuries. After running a few 10k runs on my own I thought how could I challenge myself and potentially raise money for the MNDA too? I came up with the idea of a repetitive challenge that would mean I had to be focussed and well organised whilst challenging me both mentally and physically.

The thought of running 5K isn’t scary, but 5K every day needed serious planning. I’ve done park runs on Saturday mornings with the family and  really enjoyed the variety of running all over the country on what I called my 305K2D challenge."

A former professional rugby player, Mark’s final run was in Rugby ending at the iconic rugby ball statue. So far he has raised over £1100.

Mark continued:

"I ran for MNDA because a good friend and the brother of my business partner has unfortunately contracted Motor Neurone’s disease; a disease that affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord and eventually leads to the weakening and eventual wasting of the muscles. It’s a terrible disease particularly for someone like Kev who was a professional sportsman being a really good rugby league player in his younger days.

I’d like to thank everyone who has donated so far. Anything we can do to support the research into this terrible disease would be fantastic."
