The General Manager of the Stansted Hilton Hotel, Barbara Matheson, said: “It doesn't matter what age you are or your level of fitness - every bit of effort helps! To get involved all you have to do is register in advance and join us at the hotel on June 29 for a fantastic day of fun and fitness.”

Predator, also known as Du'aine Ladejo, is an Olympic medal winner and ahppy to be participating in the fundraising event. He said: “It's great to be a part of Around the World in a Day. It's really important to support children who need our help around the country and when doing so also encourage people to get active - it's a perfect scenario.”

The two events are the Miles4fun family one mile course and the Team Challenge which takes place on cardiovascular equipment located in the hotel lobby.
