Dutch mission for fundraiser

Have your say

FITNESS fanatic John McCormack is heading across the North Sea with his trainers – to run the Rotterdam Marathon in aid of Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

John, from Hunters Bar, is taking part in the event on Sunday.

He has previously helped organise boxing shows raising a total of £30,600 for the hospital and appeals set up by the families of two Sheffield youngsters being treated there for cancer – Ella Frith and Ben O’Brien.

John, who describes both children as ‘inspirational’, said: “I’m paying for all of the trip out of my own expenses, so any money raised goes straight to Ward 3, Sheffield Children’s Hospital which is currently treating Ella and Ben.”

John, a management consultant, is appealing for sponsorship.
