A 10-YEAR-OLD boy from South East Corwall who aimed to run 30 miles in two days exceeded both the distance and his fundraising targets after his campaign was picked up by users of a social networking website. Leighton Howe, from Drakewalls near Gunnislake, attends Delaware Primary School, and suffers from dyspraxia and uses inhalers. Despite this he is a member of Tavistock Athletics Club in West Devon and goes out running every day. He set himself a fundraising challenge of raising £300 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) by running 30 miles from Torpoint to Fowey. On his JustGiving page Leighton explained: 'I am a keen runner. In the past I have raised money for other charities and this year thought of upping my game. 'I have chosen the charity MNDA as a friend of my dad was diagnosed with it only a few years ago. It is a terrible disease and I only hope this will help someone with any equipment they need. 'I hope you can help me in another challenge I have set and that is raising £300. Thank you for taking the time to read this.' But after his fundraising effort was picked up by supporters on Facebook he reached his target of £300 in just a few hours. Now he has done the run run, accompanied by his dad Craig, he has so far raised £1,691 – and also exceeded his running target by covering 40 miles, despite having to battle against strong winds and rain throughout his challenge. The last part of their run took Leighton and Craig through Lostwithiel to Fowey where proud mum Marie was waiting on Town Quay to congratulate her son and husband on their achievement.
