Couch to Marathon

Jon Stockley, National Director for CVM Cymru is running the Marathon Eryri this year. 

This is Jon's CVM Grand Challenge and the reason behind these grand challenges is to raise £1000. But it is more than that. Throughout this challenge Jon and the CVM Cymru team will be raising the profile of CVM across Wales and hopefully connecting with many people along the way. Throughout this challenge Jon will be reconnecting with old friends across Wales as well as making men new ones.

But we do need to stress that this is a very big challenge for Jon. Now, in his fifties, Jon has never run a marathon before. In fact, Jon has never been a runner before. So, the next few months will be crucial for him, and there is no guarantee of success.

So what, or who are CVM Cymru?

So, just to introduce you to CVM & CVM Cymru. We are a Christian charity that works toward seeing men getting together, supporting each other, challenging each other and at the centre of everything we do is the conviction that following Jesus, not only makes life today much better, but it gives us real hope for the future. The work of CVM Cymru really is all about helping men to become the best version of themselves.

Please do consider supporting Jon as he runs his first marathon ever!!! It will make a massive difference to him over the coming months, and if you are in or near Llanberis why not come out and cheer him along the course on Saturday 26th October.
