Going the Extra Mile: Jordan and Callum's Charity Run for MYTIME Young Carers

Jordan Williams, Head of Installations and Projects, and Callum McColl, Key Account Manager, of Unique Fire and Security recently accomplished a formidable challenge, along side MYTIME Young Carers and the team at E-Motion Fitness. Inspired by the legendary endurance athlete, David Goggins, on Friday the 28th of June, Jordan and Callum committed to running 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours, a gruelling challenge that tested their physical and mental endurance. The challenge was specifically chosen to put themselves in the position of young carers who tirelessly and selflessly work with little to no breaks, to care for their loved ones.

Over £1,000 Raised

Despite the tough conditions, including running through the night, both Jordan and Callum exceeded expectations. By the end of the challenge, they not only completed the required miles but also went the extra distance, finishing with a total of 50 miles over the weekend. Their dedication and determination were met with success as they raised over £1,000 for MYTIME Young Carers.

In a joint statement, Jordan and Callum expressed their gratitude and motivation for the challenge. “We are incredibly proud to have completed this challenge for such a worthy cause,” said Jordan.

Callum added, “Knowing that our efforts will make a real difference in the lives of young carers provided us with all the motivation we needed.”
