Former Peterborough United player Adam Fry has run six marathons in six days to raise money for mental health charity MIND

Adam, the son of Posh director of football Barry Fry who made four appearances for Posh in the 2004-05 season, set out to run three marathons in a week, but felt strong enough to cover 26 miles on six successive days.

Adam has so far raised over his intended target of £5k.

Adam said: “MIND’s contribution in offering support and resources to adults and young people in respect of mental health issues is invaluable.

“Specifically, it has been an incredible help to many people in the game – from players to supporters. Further, MIND will carry on its great work in raising awareness around mental health concerns by continuing its association with the FA cup next season.

“The current lockdown situation is having a profound impact on the psychological and emotional wellbeing of many people. In the coming months, as we re-engage with the world and with others, we will no doubt face further difficult challenges. It is vital, therefore, that charities such as MIND are able to continue to support us in these testing times.

“If you are able, please support my efforts in raising money for MIND in order for MIND to continue supporting us!”
