Buzz Does The Great North Run!
Christopher J Martin will be taking part in the Great North Run on Sunday 11th September!
Chris, from Ellistown, will be pounding the streets of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Gateshead & South Shields dressed as Buzz Lightyear and hopes to beat his previous time of 2 hours 6 minutes.
Chris has been a volunteer at Hermitage FM since November 2015, both in the Community Coffee Lounge and as a radio presenter. He is raising funds to help keep Hermitage FM on the air and continue to provide supported work placements and training to young people, long-term unemployed, adults with learning difficulties, disabilities and mental health issues.
The Great North Run half marathon takes in a 13.1 mile route and is the biggest mass participation event in Britain.
