Thanks to runners who helped Children’s Trust

I would like to thank the 145 runners from across the UK, who ran for The Children’s Trust in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon in April and have so far helped raise over £265,000!

I would like to thank our celebrity runners, television and radio presenter Jenni Falconer, celebrity milliner Louis Mariette and “Britain’s Got Talent” impressionist Philip Green.

The Children’s Trust, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. The money raised from the marathon will help to enhance the lives of these children.

Applications are now open to join The Children’s Trust London Marathon 2015 team. So, if you’ve always wanted to tick it off your bucket list, apply now. We’ll support you on the lead up to the big day with expert advice on training preparations and training days. Plus, on the day we’ll have cheering points along the course and an after party to celebrate with you and your supporters.

One of the team said: “Running past your cheer points gave me a big boost and kept me going to the finish line and the leg massage at the after party.”
