一名由英国返港的跑手 Peter Cooper近期在家中抗疫,他选择在隔离 14 日期间完成创举,留在家中跑全马,为一间关注精神健康的机构筹得 500 英镑善款。

28 岁的英籍跑手 Peter Cooper 本身是网上旅游平台公司的员工,早前由英国返港居家隔离。原本是平平无奇的日子,他忽发奇想在家中跑“室内马拉松”。一开始是在家中约4米的距离来回跑步,后来改为在屋中央摆一张餐桌绕圈跑,最后以 4 小时 29 分钟完成全马途程,更加直播片段与朋友们分享。

Today wasn’t about me completing a marathon, today was about raising awareness of three very important charities close to my heart @mindcharity, @clicsargent and @cardiomyopathyuk. @cardiomyopathyuk a charity so close to my heart who really have helped me with the lost of my mum. My three marathons got cancelled this year and this was to make my mum proud in 2020! @mindcharity as some of you know, I’m on a quarantine tag and can’t leave my flat for 14 days, for those who know me well will know how mad I’m sending my wife @amylcooper19. For me, exercise helps my mental health and I know it helps others but currently we need people to be kind and reach out to anyone they know who may be alone or struggling during this time. A short call to a loved one could go a long way or even a short walk for fresh air could too. Thanks for your support to help me complete this. If you want to donate please go to either https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/peter-cooper24 for @cardiomyopathyuk or https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/peter-cooper32 for @mindcharity. I also did this in memory of my Mum and also best friend @will_utv l. My best mate @george_falck is also doing an amazing job of raising huge funds for @clicsargent and if you want to donate to this also, that would be great https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/willfalcks This photo is me with my mums @bostonmarathon medal and my @marathonrotterdam which I ran with Will! #running #motivation #mentalhealth #cardiomyopathy #staysafe #washyourhands #bekind
