Steve runs three marathons for ExtraCare
Milton Keynes runner Steve Salmon is taking part in three marathons this year to raise money for ExtraCare!
The three marathons are in Paris, London and Milton Keynes and altogether Steve will be running more than 78 miles.
His link with ExtraCare comes through his partner Leigh West who is Activities Facilitator at Shenley Wood Village.
Steve says: “I spend a lot of time there and realise just how valuable ExtraCare is in giving older people an independent, safe and secure future in its network of inspirational communities.”
Steve is an IT engineer working for Managed 24/7 who lives in Milton Keynes. He helps at some of the activities which take place at Shenley Wood Village.
He has taken part in marathons before and is now busy training for the next three.
Catherine Duffield-Smith, Trusts and Foundations Fundraiser at ExtraCare, says: “I am absolutely delighted that Steve has chosen ExtraCare as his charity of choice for his three marathon challenge. I wish him good health and tons of luck as he takes on this momentous feat for the benefit of older people.”

Head of Fundraising Alison Whittingham says:
“Many of us might think about running a marathon for charity, not many actually do, so running three in such a short space of time is an incredible feat by Steve and shows a real generosity of spirit. Good luck Steve and thank you for helping us to give older people a new lease of life. That’s what we all want more of. That’s ExtraCare.”
