Joe Mylius has set himself the challenge to help support the hospital charity's coronavirus fund.

The youngster from Woodgreen is a keen runner and originally aimed to get fit and get quicker during lockdown.

Jo, who goes to Breamore Primary School, asked his mum to help set up fundraising page for the hospital charity.

He's already clocked up 68 miles and is determined to finish the challenge.

“I chose to do running during lockdown because I wanted to keep fit while I could not go to my normal running club and football training. I decided to set myself a challenge to run two miles a day to make a total of 100 miles to earn a NHS running medal. I then decided to set up the fundraising appeal and I have received over £400 so far. 

I am so excited to complete the challenge and raise such a lot of money. My current PB for 2 mile run is 12 minutes 7 seconds so I have got much quicker since I started.”

You can support Joe via his JustGiving page.
