Press Release – Mr Newham’s London Run
A former Middlesbrough and Manchester United footballer has a new goal of inspiring Teesside children by taking on a gruelling 280-mile run from Teesside to London.
Steve Newham, who played youth football for both Middlesbrough and United, aims to raise up to £10,000 in sponsorship by running 40 miles a day for a week.
The money he raises will help fund a once-in-a-lifetime performance at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in London by more than 100 pupils from three primary schools within Tees Valley Education Trust.
