Lee Dickens, Sales Manager at B.E.Wedge, took part in Wolverhampton’s Best Foot Forward event held last year at Aldersley Athletics Stadium. The initiative was run by the Rotary Club of Wolverhampton, of which Jeremy Woolridge is a member, and raised vital funds for Compton Hospice, Children in Need and the Rotary Charitable Trust, with individuals sponsored to complete laps of the track in return for match-funding.
Lee successfully completed 63 laps of the track equating to a fantastic 15.5 miles which saw him come 36th out of 436 people, with participants raising £13,450 in total for the local charities. It has been a busy few months for Lee, who also completed the Wolverhampton Half Marathon on 7th September 2014 in a fantastic one hour and 46 minutes, raising £450 for Cancer Research UK.
Lee said: “The events were both really enjoyable and it was fantastic to be able to raise so much for the charities, which really rely on donations. I look forward to undertaking the challenges again and participating in more in the future.”
