MARATHON ACHIEVEMENT: A nine-year-old boy has raised loads of cash for a good cause!

Happy News

A NINE-YEAR-OLD boy with cerebral palsy has raised more than £92,000 by completing a marathon with his walker.

Tobias Weller walked a total of 26.2 miles on the streets near his home in Sheffield by doing 750 metres at a time, after being inspired by Captain Tom Moore. He smashed his original target of £500 on his way to raising such a huge sum, which will be split between his school, Paces, and Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Tobias told Sky News: “I’m chuffed to bits to raise loads of money. Other children who aren’t as lucky as me can benefit from the money that’s been raised.”

His mum, Ruth Garbutt, gave him a well-earned medal as he crossed the finish line at the end of his marathon. Well done, Tobias!
