INTREPID teacher Steve Hill is preparing to embark on his “toughest” ever challenge.
Given Steve has trekked through the Sahara Desert, completed a footrace through the Amazon Jungle and climbed a succession of towering peaks, then his August adventure promises to be epic.
In the process the deputy head of St Joseph’s School, Shaw, has raised more than £100,000 for local charities.
Now Steve has set himself the giant task of completing the Great Norse Run – nine marathons in 10 days across Iceland over a total of 250 miles.
He will be raising money for Team Hill Charitable Trust supporting Dr Kershaw’s, Milly’s Smiles, other local good causes and projects in Uganda providing homes, healthcare and education for children and young people.
Steve says: “As always I will be funding the trip myself.
“I am getting myself in the best possible shape to complete this extremely tough challenge and raise as much money as possible for Team Hill Charitable Trust.
“As part of my training I will be running the London Marathon in April and the Uganda Marathon for a third time in May.”
