FORMER world kickboxing champion Jamie Beech has helped raise more than £3k for a range of charities from a gruelling hill sprint in Wollaston.
Jamie and 17 supporters completed 100 sponsored sprints up Swan Pool Park on Saturday August 17.
The group has raised more than £3k for charities including Mary Stevens Hospice, Cystic Fibrosis, Cancer Research UK and Birmingham Neo-Natal Unit.
Jamie, who is 29 and from Wollaston, said: “It was fantastic.
“It was a good little community turnout.
“Some of these people have been coming to bootcamp, training really hard.
“They would never have dreamed of being able to do this - it was a really hard task.”
Sainsburys provided water and fruit to hill sprinters and Oldswinford fish and chip shop Merchants donated refreshments.
Jamie’s no stranger to hill sprints as they feature prominently in his Beech Body Boot Camps which take place in Swan Pool Park three times a week.
