Beat officer takes on the Equinox challenge for MND Association
Main article content
A beat officer from the Charnwood Neighbourhood Policing area is taking part in a gruelling 24-hour challenge to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
PC Jason Stowell will be running in the Equinox event at Belvoir Castle, in Rutland, between Saturday 18 September and Sunday 19 September. He will be completing as many rounds as he can around a 10k circuit over a 24-hour period.
A number of officers in recent years have lost their lives to MND, and Jason is running in memory of PC Graham Hall who sadly lost his life to the disease last year.

Jason said: “Graham was a very dear friend and colleague who I had the pleasure of working with in various roles across the force area. He was a bobby’s bobby, a genuine guy who is missed by so many people.
“I wanted to raise awareness of MND and help support the research into the debilitating disease in memory of Graham and all those who have lost their lives in this way. My aim is to run at least 10 times around the circuit, achieving 60 miles during the 24 hours.
“I’d be grateful for any donations to this great cause, big or small, as every penny counts. Thank you for all your support and I hope I can do Graham proud.”
