A marathon month for #TeamExtraordinary

24 Apr 2017

We are so proud of our 17 runners, who’ve taken on the Brighton and London marathons this month.  We want to say a huge thank you and well done for your inspirational efforts!

So far they have raised over £22,000 and counting, a fantastic total!

From running in memory of loved ones, to funding essential research, they tackled 26.2 miles for a range of causes within the hospitals we support, each of which meant something personal to them.

Thank you also to Rubicon Estates who once again invited us to join them at their offices for the London Marathon. At 14 miles in, it was the perfect cheer point and as well as having one of their team Danny running for us, they supported us by offering food and drinks (and the use of their toilet!)  to spectators in return for donations.

If you’ve been inspired by #TeamExtraordinary’s efforts at this month’s marathons, please get in touch with Ellie and check our social media pages for details of the 2018 London Marathon next week.
