A total of 31 people ran in the Round Table Children’s Wish team in the recent London Marathon, raising more than £44,000.
The event is the biggest fund-raising occasion of the year for the charity which helps children suffering with a life-threatening or terminal illness and their families through the most difficult time of their lives.
Fundraising officer Clare Kyrillou said: “We are beyond grateful for the support and commitment of all our runners – and the amazing total they’ve raised for our work.
“On behalf of everyone at Round Table Children’s Wish we thank them for choosing to help us and our wish children. It was a real pleasure for the charity to see them off at the start line in Greenwich Park – and then to watch them run past at Mile 17 looking strong and still smiling.
“Amongst our team were several members of the Round Table family, a Superhero Pea, first-time marathoners, dedicated ultra-runners and Nick Butter, who had completed 200 marathons in 128 days around Britain’s coastline just six weeks before race day.”
