Congratulations to our London Marathon runners

On Sunday 23 April, 38 Kids supporters ran the London Marathon to raise money for disabled children, young people and their families.

Team Kids trained for six months to ready themselves for the 26 miles run, while fundraising to reach their targets. Together they raised £52,736, which is a fantastic achievement.

Runners met each other during our pasta party, which was hosted at a venue kindly provided by Greystar. The team shared their reasons for running and found they had one thing in common: the drive to make a difference. Runner Jack said:

“I am so fortunate to be able to run at all, let alone attempt a marathon. Thus, I can think of no better charity than Kids to run for!”

The money raised by our runners will help Kids continue its work supporting families with disabled children in England. Rebecca Attwood, Fundraising Events Coordinator, said:

“At Kids our vision is a world where disabled children, young people and their families get the same opportunities as everyone else. Our amazing staff across the country focus on what is possible, not what isn’t. Our runners’ dedication and hard work has completely brought this ethos to life. Thank you!”

Our applications are now open for charity entries in the 2024 London Marathon. Apply today and help create a brighter future for disabled children.
