Michael Edwards, from Dumfries, is raising awareness of the dangers of asthma, after his daughter died following an asthma attack.
He's raising money for Asthma UK - a charity that funds research and supports people with the condition.

Many people are unaware of how dangerous asthma can be... that's why Michael Edwards has been raising awareness of the condition.
His daughter, Imogen, died following a huge asthma attack when she was just 17.
I phoned her round about twenty to five as I always did, because she'd finished school and I could hear the telly in the background and she's had a bath and she was sitting eating food.
I said oh you're doing fine and she said yes I'm sitting watching the telly dad, just waiting for you to come home.
I then left work, and at about ten to six a text came through for me saying please try and come home quick, with kisses after it as always."
Michael arrived home to find Imogen had suffered a massive asthma attack.
He called 999, and drove Imogen to the bottom of the hill near their home in Wallaceton to wait for the ambulance.
It was then that she collapsed on me, she got out of the car and obviously it seems like an eternity but it wasn't - they were probably here in about ten minutes from Thornhill.
Basically she went and I caught her and laid her down, tried to do what I could you know, tried to give her CPR obviously.
When she had her attack initially it was on the floor in the front room, she looked very white and it can be so sudden. And that time I did CPR and her breath came back... but this time whatever I did wasn't good enough and I failed."
Michael is now doing whatever he can to raise awareness of the condition.
He's known at his work and in his local community for his trademark long hair, but is having it all shaved off to raise money for Asthma UK.
Whatever I can do to try and help people... it's the best thing I can do and it will be a great memorial testament to Imogen."

Michael Edward's 17-year-old daughter, Imogen, died from the condition in February last year.

Scotrail says passengers travelling between Carlisle and Glasgow via Dumfries will face delays from Monday morning.
Two engineering trains collided on Saturday morning damaging the track. No one was hurt.
Trains between Glasgow Central and Carlisle via Dumfries will terminate at Kilmarnock and start back from Dumfries. Replacement buses will run between Kilmarnock and Dumfries.
A crane is being brought in to remove the wagons before the repairs can begin. The line is expected to be closed for about two weeks.
Once the derailed wagons have been recovered the repair work will take approximately three days to complete. Therefore it is expected that the line will remain closed for a number of days. During this time passenger services will start and terminate at Dumfries and Kilmarnock and freight traffic will be diverted via West Coast Main Line and Paisley.
