Jason Hobson, managing director of Gledhill, has raised more than £1,500 towards a life-saving treatment for a little girl after competing in the gruelling Reebok Super Spartan Race.
The 12kM course saw Jason tackle fire, electric shocks and barbed wire in order to raise funds to enable six-year-old Lilly May, who goes to school with his daughter, to travel to America to receive revolutionary proton therapy treatment for a brain tumour.
“The last months have been a terrible strain for the family and I’m thrilled that everyone has been so generous in supporting me through this mad challenge,” said Jason.
“I never thought I would be able to do something like this, but when Lilly May’s first operation failed, there was such little hope I felt I had to do my bit.
“Lilly May recently started her nine-week intensive treatment programme and I, along with everyone at Gledhill, will be thinking of her and wish her well.”
