Top UK sports journalist prospect takes on 26 mile challenge in his 21st birthday week

By Good News Post

Journalist Liam Drury will run the marathon distance throughout January in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

He is 21 on Friday and has a fantastic career lined up as a sports journalist with an incredible six years of journalistic experience behind him.

Liam, a founding reporter of the Good News Post in 2017 and Weston-super-Mare AFC Club Media Officer, has already raised £145 and hopes to hit his £500 before the end of the month.

Liam said: “Last summer, I started getting into running because I wanted on getting fitter and I thought that it was a good time to begin. 

“Over the last six months, I’ve slowly built myself up when running and at the end of December, I came across the fundraiser for Prostate Cancer UK. 

“I decided to combine my newfound passion and a good cause, signing up along with thousands of other people to make my running that little bit more worthwhile.

“Thankfully, I don’t know anybody that has been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer but for thousands of people across the country, that won’t be the case.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has already donated and I look forward to completing the challenge.”

Liam was a student at Priory Community School Academy.
