Howard, one of our fantastic supporters taking part in the London marathon

Thank you and congratulations to all our wonderful London Marathon runners. You’re an inspiration to us all.

Here's a selection of photos featuring our favourite moments from the race. 

If you’re as inspired by our supporters as we are, why not register your interest to run for us in next year’s event? Be quick as we only have a small number of places! 

The official 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon ballot will open for ONE day on the 22 April! If you get a place, we’d love to have you run for us.

Howard (pictured above) first came across our work nine years ago while working in Africa and has been a supporter ever since. He runs marathons and ultra marathons all over the world, including running the London Marathon for the 10th time this year! Overall he's raised a staggering £75,862 for us. Howard, you are truly our super supporter.

Richard

Richard had been hoping to run the marathon for us since 2012 but injury prevented him. This year's marathon was particularly special for him and he managed to raise a fantastic £1,354 for our work. Richard, thank you for your determination - it paid off in the end.

Rachel works for us and is very passionate about our work. She chose to run for us with her boyfriend Steve who had his own place. From knitting scarves and gloves for donations, holding sweepstakes, gaining sponsorship and holding a huge quiz night - they've raised an amazing £1,879! Thank you Rachel and Steve!

Steve

Steve works for Prima Solutions, the sponsors of our fashion and retail event. His marathon run raised a whopping £1,058 and donations are still coming in. Steve's fundraising efforts don't stop now the race is over - he's taking part in more events this year to raise money for our work.

Anna

Anna was introduced to our work many years ago by our ex-chief executive Geoffrey Dennis and has been supporting us ever since. Anna has been an incredible supporter, raising a staggering £2,063 for her marathon! Thank you Anne for your continued support.
