After months of training, strict eating regimes, lots of early nights and loads of fundraising, on 13th April our brave volunteers ran a gruelling 26 miles in the Virgin London Marathon in aid of the Together Trust.
People run the marathon for so many reasons and raising money for charities close to them is often what motivates people to take part. This year one of our runners was Conor, a Together Trust employee. The money he has raised will be used at the service where he works. Conor said, “It was a really enjoyable run, an unbelievable day and the atmosphere and crowd support were amazing.”
A big thank you to all our runners!
