“My dad died at St Luke’s five years ago,” said 48-year-old Shaun, who lives with wife Karen and their two children in Beighton.
“I never used to run at all but when my dad died I knew I wanted to do something for St Luke's and I’ve been building up to this.
“I love it because I it’s keeping me fit and at the same time I know that I am achieving something for the hospice.
“I’ve set myself a target of £1,000 but I’d really like to pass that by the end of the year and I’ve already got to more than £500 – and we’re not even into spring yet.”
