Steve Grimsley is an intergral part of the Odyssey team, but many of you may never have seen him before. Steve delivers all of our Odyssey Mail’s and clocks up a staggering 15 miles every day on his routes!
An ardent Man City fan – but we still like him, Steve is celebrating his 20th Great North Run for Chairty.
As Steve says “To celebrate my 40th birthday in 1994, I entered my first Great North Run in aid of the Francis House Children’s Hospice. I was immediately addicted and so began my love affair with run. In subsequent years I ran for the hospice and then when my father was diagnosed with Alzheimers, this was my chosen Charity.
Breast Cancer then reared its ugly head in my home and now as I prepare for my 20th Great North Run, Breast Cancer Care is my chosen Charity. I shall grow and dye my beard pink to match my all pink running attire, which always gets me noticed!
The Great North Run is a superb event and has raised millions for good causes, all I do is run and ask for as much support as possible.
To help my training I have had the pleasure over the past nine years to visit 8,000 homes a month with the Odyssey Mail and the kindness and support received from Odyssey and it’s members has been immense”.
