THREE charities shared more than £1,700 after a young engineer covered 50 miles by walking and running to work for a week. 

Jack Durham (26), from Bramley, collected the cash for Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind (SRSB), Breast Cancer Care and Alzheimer’s Research by walking to his home in Rotherham to the Attercliffe base of engineering firm Gripple.

Jack’s 50-mile total included 36 miles of running and 14 of walking — taking approximately 98,000 steps and earning him multiple blisters.

In addition to the Walk to Work Challenge, Jack (pictured) took part in the 2017 Night Strider Charity Walk to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice, completing the half-marathon Route in three-and-a-half hours.
