Mat Drew from the Communications Team is taking part in the NHS 1000 miles, a challenge to mark the NHS's 75th birthday. Those taking part are asked to walk, run, swim or cycle (or a combination) the distance of 1000 miles this year. That’s an average of 2.74 miles per day. As well as being a great way to mark the birthday, physical activity is good for your body and mind. Find out more about the challenge and the NHS 75 birthday celebrations here.
Here Mat talks about his journey on the challenge so far.
