Northampton Town academy under 12 player Reiss Wheatley-Crane is running 100km throughout June to raise funds for a new outside play area for the Children's Wards at Northampton General Hospital.
Reiss was born prematurely and spent the first 6 weeks of his life on Gosset Ward at Northampton General Hospital.
He has set himself this challenge of running 100km throughout June, in order to raise money for the Children's Wards at the same hospital that helped him 12 years ago.
Northamptonshire Health Charity has been asked to raise £130,000 for a new outdoor play area for children while they are in hospital.
For a child, being able to play whilst being treated in hospital is really important for their recovery as it is reassuring and familiar, enabling children to express their feelings and anxieties.
