Sussex dad will climb every mountain
12:10pm Saturday 9th February 2013 in News
A father-of-two will be tackling 24 peaks in 24 hours – to prove to his children that winning the dads’ race at their school sports day was not just luck.
Formerly 17 stone Kevin Miller from Ringmer has run two marathons since the race three years ago.
He said: “The children don’t laugh anymore and they are proud of me, which feels brilliant.”
The dustcart driver for Lewes District Council will be taking on the challenge in the Lake District to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
He said: “My brother Michael died when he was just 19 from cystic fibrosis (CF).
“I also had another brother Keith who died at just six weeks old before I was born.”
The 46-year-old wants to raise £2,400 to fund research into the condition – £100 for every peak he completes.
