From Tumour to Training… Andrew Potts is our latest inspiration
If you’re lacking motivation whether that be in sports or your work life, the journey of KP Simpson’s Managing Director is all the motivation you need to get up and go. Having undergone surgery on a brain tumour in June 2017, Andrew Potts is now fighting fit and joining over 50,000 runners in this years Great North Run.
Having previously ran the famous Newcastle to South Shields route just twice, Andrew is ready to get back on the track, and though most would shudder at the thought of the 13.1-mile run, Andrew began his training just three months post-surgery. Unable to drive following the operation, Andrew’s training involves running from his KP Simpson Accounting offices in Jarrow to his home in Cleadon and having completed a whopping 700 miles in training this year, Andrew will undoubtably be ready to cross that bridge and make it to finish line.
Running in respect of The Brain Tumour Charity, Andrew hopes to raise awareness of the charity and support those who are in the situation that he was just one year ago by hitting is fundraising target of £1000.
With just a few weeks to go, Andrew is excited to join the atmosphere and even more excited for that finish line feeling.
Good luck Andrew, from all of the team at KP Simpson and the Jammy Dodgers at JAM Marketing.
