A marathon effort from our friends of WAY

April 2023

A huge thank you to our two incredible friends of WAY who ran in the London Marathon last weekend to raise funds for WAY; between them, they have raised more than £2,200.

WAY marathon runners Nick and Maggie
  • Our Volunteer Manager’s neighbour Nick ran his first London Marathon for WAY in 3 hours and 54 minutes, raising more than £1,500

  • And another friend of WAY, Margaret – who ran in memory of her friend’s husband Simon – completed the race in 4 hours and 44 minutes, raising more than £600.

"...the race and atmosphere all the way around the course was amazing.  It gives you such a lift when people in the crowds shout your name and cheer you on, it makes you feel emotional too.  If any of your members are looking for a challenge this is one they will always remember so I say ‘Go for it’ you’ll be so pleased you did." - Margaret.

We don’t know about you, but we are exhausted just thinking about it! Well done to them both for their amazing times and fundraising efforts.
