A Heart listener is taking on a big challenge for Global’s Make Some Noise this summer.

Heart listener Tom Dell is taking on an amazing challenge to raise money for Global’s Make Some Noise.

As the Olympics kick off in Tokyo, Tom will be running one mile for every medal that Team GB win - which is hopefully a lot.

Our very own Jamie Theakston and Zoe Hardman will be chatting to Tom throughout the week on Heart Breakfast to see how he’s getting and send their support.

If you want to get behind Tom’s epic challenge too, you can donate to his Just Giving page HERE.
