Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director of DSales (UK) Ltd is taking on four major fundraising events in aid of Joining Jack, a charity which funds awareness and research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and is the chosen charity partner of DSales.
The fundraising campaign began with the Run Wigan Festival, held over five kilometres in mid-March. However extreme weather prevented Jonathan getting to Wigan so, undeterred, he braved the Yorkshire snows to complete the 5K distance closer to home.
In July Jonathan will take part in the 50-mile Wigan Bike Ride, for which DSales is also the principal sponsor. At the end of July Jonathan will also participate in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge aiming to complete the 25-mile route in less than twelve hours over three peaks of around 700 metres each: Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Finally, in September Jonathan takes on the Wigan 10K run.
Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director of DSales (UK) Ltd said, "as a business owner I believe it's very important to give something back to our community. Joining Jack is our corporate charity and it's hard to think of a more deserving cause for our efforts. Jack Johnson is the little lad who inspired the charity and with his parents Alex and Andy, we are all determined to find a way to combat Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy."
