He’s already taken on the challenge of the Northumberland Coastal Marathon, but this weekend Lee Harris will be heading off down south to take part in the London Marathon on Sunday. Lee is also planning to run the Great North Run in September and the Kielder Marathon in October, and he’s doing it all in aid of LD:NorthEast!









Lee told us “Running for me has always been a form of exercise and also meditation. I suffered with depression around 3-4 year ago, and it helped me fight my way through and loose a few pounds in weight at the same time. There’s been many times when it has been the only way to keep me focused and help myself through the difficult times”.

“This is going to be my 5th London Marathon, my 7th Great North Run, and hopefully my 8th at Kielder later in the year. After many years of running for ‘fun’ I have decided to put the endured pain to a good cause!”

We are so grateful to Lee for his support and wish him the very best of luck for the London Marathon. If you would like to sponsor Lee you can donate via his online fundraising page:https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/LeeHarris27
