James Meadows runs 100 miles to raise awareness of the IMOCM youth anti-knife crime campaign.
On Friday 1st April our IMOCM witnessed a true hero in action, the amazing ultra-marathon runner James Meadows donned his running shoes and embarked on a 100-mile run all in memory of his school friend Colin.
James set put at 6pm on Friday evening and ran throughout the night completing his 100-mile ultra-marathon in just under 19 hours!
James is a keen runner and has taken part in many running events throughout the years, but this was by far his biggest challenge to date. James’ motivation was simple, he wanted to help spread the word surrounding the dangers of youth related anti-social behaviour and knife crime. He has young children himself and fears that what is happening across the region is slowly but surely getting out of hand.
Not only did James absolutely smash this run he managed to raise over 1k in sponsorship money that was then able to be used to purchase 10 additional KnifeSaver bleed control packs.
