Hospital worker to run 100 laps of GWH to raise funds in honour of Colonel Tom - the equivalent of 45 miles

By Jamie Hill - 5 May 2020


On Thursday, Adam Commons will be running a distance just short of two marathons for Brighter Futures in honour of Colonel Tom Moore.

GWH's Head of Service for DOME, Neurology and Stroke, Adam Commons, is taking on a 100-target challenge of his own to say thank you to Colonel Tom Moore who has raised over £30million for the NHS.

On Thursday, Adam will be running 100 laps of the Great Western Hospital to raise funds for the Brighter Futures COVID-19 Appeal. This is about 45 miles - that's just a few miles short of two marathons!

Throughout the day, Adam will be joined by different staff from across the Trust who will be running a few laps each with him. Everybody taking part in this challenge wants to use the opportunity to thank the public for their generosity and support during this time.

Due to social distancing regulations, we will not be able to invite people to watch Adam run on the day but you can still support him by donating to the appeal here:
