Harrogate couple Richard and Milly Grafton have raised almost £2,000 in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research after running the Yorkshire Marathon in York on Sunday.
Richard, who is the managing director of Harrogate-based design store and studio Richard Grafton Interiors, said:
This was our first marathon and it was a real experience. It was both physically and mentally punishing and has left my body feeling like a plank of wood so I can’t say I’d be up for another challenge like this for a while!
Having said that though, I would suggest that there is probably a marathon in everyone and if you really want to do it you can. The most important achievement for Milly and me is that we have raised £2,000 for Yorkshire Cancer Research, which does such vital work in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. We’d like to say thank you to all the fantastic people who sponsored us.
Richard and Milly completed the Yorkshire Marathon in four hours seven minutes, and three hours 58 minutes respectively. Sponsorship, in aid of Yorkshire Cancer research can still be given online at www.justgiving.com/Richard-Grafton
