The London Marathon and Raising money for DEMENTIA REVOLUTION
Thank you to everyone for their good wishes this week and donations this morning on the gate. Thanks also to other people who have recently donated online. The London Marathon 2018 raised a record-breaking £63 million for charity. It also brought the total raised since the first race, in 1981, to more than £955 million, which means that this year the 39th London Marathon will pass the £1bn mark. A staggering amount!
I am really looking forward to Sunday, despite knowing how painful the last few miles are. The London Marathon is an amazing event for so many reasons. The crowds. Total strangers encouraging you on with cheers (and jelly babies!), brass bands, charity cheer zones. Running on the roads of London with 50,000 other runners helps ease the sore, tired muscles ahead.
I would like to wish Daniel O well. Daniel is in Year 6 and has done amazingly well just to qualify for the Mini London Marathon (5th out of 6 qualifiers) He is representing the Borough of Lewisham and running on Sunday in the Under 13 Boys section- WOW!
If you would like to make a donation online here are my fundraising details:
