Airedale Hospital A&E Appeal – Marathon man is going ‘extra mile’

First published in Keighley

Gary Chapman has certainly gone the extra mile for the Airedale Emergency Department Appeal.

He recently completed his 17th London Marathon, and knew exactly where to donate his sponsorship proceeds from the 26.2-mile event.

He decided to raise funds for the Emergency Department because he had been a patient there.

Gary added a twist to his running attire and ran head to toe painted in Keighley and Craven Athletics Club’s running colours.

The Emergency Department staff would like to say a massive thank you to Gary for raising £606. The money will help provide much-needed resources and equipment to enhance patient care in the department.
