Run with Mark (and Michelle)

Marathon treadmill run at Princes Mall shopping centre, Saturday 27th March, 12-4pm.
Edinburgh Spotlight is supporting Mark Cooper on his journey to complete 50 marathons in 56 days for charity throughout Europe.  We recently wrote about his amazing endurance challenge  but he is now raising local support and donations by running 3 marathons in the next month at various shopping centres around town.

The local lad appeared on GMTV news last week before his first of 3 marathons in Edinburgh shopping centres.   Mark would love for residents of Edinburgh to pop along and see him this weekend between 12pm and 4pm in Princes Mall shopping centre at Waverley Market.

Say hello to marathon Mark as he runs 26 miles on a treadmill and make a donation,  no matter how small.  Every penny will help reach his target for the Edinburgh Headway Group.  This week sees a very special friend give Mark lots of support whilst he runs – Michelle the bear.  She will be there to hand out information, pose for photographs and keep the young visitors amused.
