A daily marathon

Chris Benger, Acting Pack Manager, Newport is another marathoner who will be running the London Marathon on 17 April. Chris is running on behalf of LATCH, a charity which supports the special requirements of the children’s oncology centre in Wales.  LATCH helps families affected by cancer and promotes research into childhood cancer.

Chris has managed to raise a magnificent £1,130 in sponsorship so far, with £250 of that donated by his Smiths News colleagues in Newport.

Chris is no stranger to running - he either runs or cycles most days into work.  This is an incredible 26-mile round trip, although if he runs he just does it one way.  Still, it’s practically a marathon every day.
