On the 23 April 2017, Children in Crisis’ 41 heroes joined a record 40,341 runners to experience the world’s best marathon. We’re proud to report that every single one of our runners finished the amazing challenge they had set for themselves.
Our runners’ friends and family cheered, whooped and cried with pride as their loved-ones passed us at our Mile-19 cheer point. We loved giving out hugs and high fives to our runners, who looked like they were having the time of their life!
A warm welcome
It was wonderful to meet so many of our runners and their supporters too at our post-race reception, where runners were treated to some most-well-deserved massages and plates of pasta.
What a great day!
£82,224 and counting…
Our runners have done an amazing job with fundraising this year, hosting balls, running pop-up shops, holding pub quizzes and many other imaginative events to raise sponsorship.
Their running total is £82,224 with more coming in each day! A big thank you from everyone here at our London office, this support will give a massive boost to our work, helping us to educate and protect forgotten children.
