Crosby & Blundellsands Labour Action Team's Ben Murphy put his best foot forward as he raised £250 for Jospice at a gruelling 10k sponsored run in Southport at the weekend.
Ben completed the Mad Dog 10k Run in Southport on Sunday in 58 minutes 4 seconds.
The former Merchant Taylors' pupil and University of York graduate decided to take part in the run to raise money for the worthy local charity.
Ben said: "I took part in the Mad Dog 10k because I wanted to raise money for Jospice.
"I wanted to get fit and support a great local cause at the same time, so I thought training for the run would give me the incentive.
"It was great on the day with over 2,400 people taking part, everyone of them urging everyone else on. And there was lots of support from spectators along the route, which was great.
"It was a brilliant atmosphere."
Ben thanked everyone who supported him and donated.
Ben said: "So far I have raised £250. I'd like to thank everyone who has donated so far.
"Jospice if a great cause. We all know someone whose life has been touched in some way by the fantastic work the hospice does. They are a major part of our community here in Crosby and Blundellsands and the deserve our support.
"Any help anyone can give me in supporting Jospice would be much appreciated."
