Jane Tomlinson 10th Anniversary Challenge

 In April this year, Greg Mulholland MP is joining Mike & Rebecca Tomlinson to attempt the Jane Tomlinson Appeal 10 Anniversary Challenge.

 

 They will take on an 8 day challenge, completing the Paris Marathon ahead of a 6 day cycle route to London ahead of the London Marathon via Hull and the Jane Tomlinson Appeal’s home turf of Yorkshire. 

 It is 10 years since Jane Tomlinson, CBE, ran the London marathon for the first time, the first terminally ill breast cancer patient to complete it. With this April marking the 10th anniversary; the Tomlinson family & team, including Greg, have set themselves a truly ‘marathon’ endurance challenge.

 

Greg will be raising money for: -

 

·         The Jane Tomlinson Appeal, who help children's and cancer charities across Yorkshire, the UK and the globe 

·         Kidz in Kampz, based in Holt Park in Leeds, who fund programs for children displaced by conflict in refugee camps on the Thai/ Burmese boarder 

·         The Leeds Rugby Foundation, based at Headingley stadium, who promote community participation and work to transform young peoples’ lives through the power of sport by fighting social inequality.
