1200 miles in memory of Glenn Simmons

1200 miles in memory of Glenn Simmons

Why we need your help

In January, Brad Simmons and his friends Michael and Jamie are running a half marathon every day for the whole month (31 back to back half marathons) covering a total of 406.1 miles each, a combined total of 1,218.3 miles.


2020 has been an awful year for Brad as he lost his Dad, Glenn, as well as his Uncle, Adrian.


On 3rd January 2021, it will be one year since Glenn passed away and Brad is eager to raise funds to go towards something that his father was passionate about. Glenn was an inspirational leader at YMCA Trinity Group. He worked tirelessly to support young people from all over Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to help them when they found themselves with nowhere to stay. Alongside this, he started the Access 2 Employment Programme in 2016 and the project has since engaged with over 1,000 people - helping them back into education, training or employment.


In raising money for A2E, Brad hopes to create the ‘Glenn Simmons Fund’ which will be able to offer individuals an opportunity to access much needed resources that they cannot afford themselves. Hopefully this will help give people a chance to begin a career in an industry where they may otherwise had been restricted to do so.

Brad is hoping to raise £1 for every mile completed and reach a target of £1,218. Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated and will help him reach this milestone!
