Run, Alan, run!

Alan Lawrenson, MedicAnimal’s customer retention officer, has set himself the challenge of running more than 456 miles to raise £10,000 for the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People charity.

His miles include four marathons and the infamous 156-mile, five-day Marathon des Sables. Said to be the toughest footrace on earth, it requires entrants to carry everything they need to survive on their back while running through Africa’s Sahara Desert.

Alan said: “When people hear what I’m doing, they usually think that my challenge is crazy. But all the training and pain is so worth it when you consider the important work that Hearing Dogs is doing for the deaf community.”
