Local physiotherapist runs ultramarathon to support Kingston Hospital Charity

27 April 2020

Specialist Pain Physiotherapist and former Kingston Hospital nurse, Richmond Stace, has raised over £3,000 for Kingston Hospital Charity following a sponsored ultramarathon.

On Monday 20 April, Richmond completed the 100km run, on the quiet roads around his home in Long Ditton.

Speaking about the challenge, Richmond said: “Each month I run an ultramarathon to raise awareness of pain problems. Many moons ago I worked at Kingston Hospital as a nurse and this month, I wanted to dedicate my run to local NHS staff, to help them keep well at this time and in the future.”

Money raised from Richmond’s challenge will go towards Kingston Hospital Charity’s staff wellbeing appeal, to support frontline staff amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

Kingston Hospital Charity’s Fundraising Manager, Michelle Bartsch, said: “To run an ultramarathon every month is amazing and we’re delighted that Richmond has chosen to raise money in support of Kingston Hospital this month. A brilliant effort by Richmond and all who kindly sponsored him. Thank you very much!”
