Boy, 10, to run 100 laps of Horsham Park to help children less fortunate
A ten-year-old boy from Horsham who found a passion for running during the first lockdown is on track to complete a challenge he set himself to help other children.
Scott Bradley is aiming to complete 100 laps around Horsham Park by the end of April which will put an end to his three-month long fundraiser in aid UNICEF.
The year-five pupil at Kingslea Primary School will be running 114 miles in total, and he is just over half way having completed 55 laps.
Kim Pawlyna, Scott’s mum, said: “During the first lockdown, running became part of his routine alongside home schooling.
“During this second lockdown we were discussing how fortunate we have been over the last year – being happy and healthy. This sparked an idea in Scott to set himself a challenge and raise some money for children less fortunate.
“I’ve been so impressed with his dedication to this challenge. It’s not always been easy, especially since he is back at school. But he feels strongly for the kids that UNICEF help and most nights after school he drags me out for a couple laps!”
So far, Scott has raised £460 and is just £40 from his £500 target. To donate, visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/scott-bradley-2010
