Rob Buckley is set to take on his first half marathon next weekend when he runs the Tewkesbury Half.
Despite only starting his running journey last year, he is aiming high and what better incentive than to run and raise funds for the work Gloucestershire Young Carers does in support of young carers in the county.
Rob, is a Director at Sure Lettings Gloucester which sells and lets properties in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Forest of Dean and Stroud.
He says: “I did a Tough Mudder just after beginning training but mainly I started running for my fitness. I had been introduced to Gloucestershire Young Carers by fellow Gloucester businessman Alex Kell and thought it was a great charity in the work it does with young people. It made sense to raise funds and it certainly helps motivate me.”
Rob will run the Tewkesbury Half Marathon on May 12th. If you want to top up his fundraising – SURE that the money will go directly into work with young people facing the challenges of caring for a family member – then sponsor Rob here.
Good luck Rob.
