Sam Gelder Day 1-a65d9df8

Sam Gelder takes on seven marathons in seven days to raise funds for The Gelder Charitable Trust and Cancer Research

Super human effort of completing seven marathons in seven days breaks through £20,000 charity fund barrier.

From Saturday 6th March to Friday 12th March, Sam Gelder will be taking on the amazing challenge of completing ‘7 marathons in 7 days’.

Amongst others, Sam (24), will be running through the villages of Corringham, Blyton, Springthorpe, Hemswell, Kexby, Upton, Willingham by Stow and each day finishing at Gelder Group’s Head Office complex at Sturton by Stow.

Sam will be raising money for the below two charities:

The Gelder Charitable Trust https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sam-gelder1

Cancer Research UK https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sam-gelder

Barclays will be match funding everything raised for Cancer Research. Gelder Group will be match funding everything for The Gelder Charitable Trust.

The Gelder Charitable Trust was set up in 2020 following the sad and sudden passing of Gelder Group Commercial Manager, James Flintham (38). The charity provides support, financial or otherwise, to construction workers and their families when they become incapacitated through illness or accident.

Sam Gelder (24) has completed marathons all over Europe as well as several triathlons and Copenhagen’s Iron Man and was due to complete this challenge at an official event in Milton Keynes which, due to Covid, has been cancelled so he has decided to attempt it solo in Lincolnshire and at the same time raise a substantial amount of money for charity.
