Racecourse Operations Manager aims to cover 220 miles in 28 days to raise money for the Natasha Lewis Foundation
Bath Racecourse’s Operations Manager, Marc Fry, has set himself the challenge to cover a total of 220 miles in just 28 days in order raise funds for the newly-formed Natasha Lewis Foundation, set up to honor Natasha Lewis, a Team GB athlete who died earlier this year.
A British bobsleigh team member, Natasha, 28, tragically died on 7 April 2021 after being struck by a car whilst on her morning run. Launched in September by her fiancé, Dave Bowler, the Natasha Lewis foundation will support young athletes and give them the chance to work with team Bath Athletics. The Foundation symbolises Natasha, or Tash as she was known, “finishing all the races that she had left to do".
Step-brother to Dave, Bath Racecourse’s Operations Manager, Marc Fry, wanted to raise funds for the foundation by completing a challenge inspired by Tash and has set himself the goal of running/swimming/cycling/walking (or even crawling!) 220 miles over 28 days – the age Tash died. His challenge started on Tuesday 21st September and finishes at the racecourse’s season finale on Monday 18th October.
Marc Fry said:
“Tash, along with her partner in crime Dave, have touched a lot of lives in the community and would always go above and beyond for those that they cared about. That was why I felt that I need to give something back and push myself out of my comfort zone.”
