Hawick youngster Callum Murray, set himself the challenge of running 100 miles in 100 days to raise money for the charity CCLASP . Children with Cancer and Leukaemia, Advice and Support for Parents (CCLASP) helps children and teenagers suffering from cancer or leukaemia. Callum was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukaemia) in 2011. His family appreciated the help and support from CCLASP who did everything they could to make Callum’s journey a little easier. Callum left the Sick Kids Hospital in January 2012 and has never looked back, he plays every sport going and lives life to the full. Callum now wants to give a little back to CCLASP for all the support over the years.
Callum’s mum Tracy is employed as a Property Services Assistant with Waverley Housing and on Friday 14th August, Tracy’s colleagues at Waverley had the pleasure of joining Callum for mile 93 of his run.
