#jonasruns #2millionsteps

My name is Jonas Cradock – and the challenge that I've set myself is to run #2millionsteps (1,243 miles!) in 2017 to raise money for the Murray Parish Trust to help build a new, dedicated children's A&E unit in Southampton, which will serve 9 counties across the south of England. This equates to running 24 miles a week for 52 weeks of the year! I'll aim to blog...

#jonasruns #2millionsteps

My name is Jonas Cradock – and the challenge that I've set myself is to run #2millionsteps (1,243 miles!) in 2017 to raise money for the Murray Parish Trust to help build a new, dedicated children's A&E unit in Southampton, which will serve 9 counties across the south of England. This equates to running 24 miles a week for 52 weeks of the year! I'll aim to blog regularly and post videos and pictures along the way.

I decided that I wanted to do this after reading an article in The Times describing the pain that Sarah Parish and James Murray have been through after the loss of their daughter Ella-Jayne, and what this grief has driven them to do. I know there are so many charities to try and support, but I believe that what Sarah and James are attempting to do is going to touch so many families, and I urge you to help me raise as much money as I can during 2017 to help them reach their £2 million target.

I live in Surrey with my wife Nicola, and work as an opera singer at Glyndebourne Opera House. I run to keep myself fit for work, and I love running around a new city when on tour.

I’ve run the London Marathon, and my most recent major run was the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October 2016. As soon as I crossed the finish line I knew that I wanted to find another challenge - and the form it would take took shape when I read about Sarah and Jim and the challenge that they’ve set themselves.
