An INCREDIBLE London Marathon 2019!

Team HEN were nothing short of phenomenal in this year's Virgin London Marathon! 

 

Each and every runner did an amazing job for us, battling on through shin splints, aches, pains and even lost toenails (OW!) to finish those 26.2 miles for us. We were bowled over by the efforts everyone went to, not only with the intensity of the physical training, but also their creative and imaginative ideas for fundraising, all on top of juggling work and family commitments. Each of them needs a superhero cape! 

 

So far we have raised over £45,000 and we're still counting! It's just amazing, and we will be able to continue enriching and supporting the lives of those managing ABI with this superb amount of money raised.

 

We will shortly be posting some great photos from this special event so watch this space! If you're interested in running for us next year - get in touch!

Next Friday 24th May is the national 'Hats for Headway' fundraising day, so if you are interested in helping raise a few pennies for our centre and spread awareness of our charity, why not encourage your friends and family to take part?!

 

Go as wild and wacky as you like - you could even design your own head gear, a la Philip Treacy!

 

If you take part - make sure you send us some photos! 

 

Thank you so much!
