Piers Middleton is running the New York Marathon, on 7 November, to raise money for the Boleh Trust.

Piers, a first time marathon runner, is hoping to raise as much money as possible to help the Boleh Trust complete the renovation of the historic sail training yacht, Boleh. The Boleh Trust is a charity helping young people, particularly from disadvantaged backgrounds, to develop the skills they need to succeed in life.

Piers, who is also a trustee of the Boleh Trust, said, “I know that the Boleh Trust is doing excellent work with young people and anything I can do to help I will – even if that means early morning training runs in the rain. I’m looking forward to crossing the finishing line knowing that I’ve done my little bit to help the Trust in its mission.”
