Managing Director Jeremy Harrison and his son Jack completed the London Marathon in April to raise money for the Get Kids Going charity.
Jack was delighted to finish in 3 hours and 58 minutes after sticking with the sub 4-hour pacer throughout the race. Jeremy trailed someway behind but was happy and relieved to finish! Jeremy said: “Taking part in the London Marathon by the capital’s landmarks and in front of the huge cheering crowds was a wonderful experience”.
The challenge of running 26.2 miles was made easier in the knowledge that their efforts were being sponsored for the benefit of the Get Kids Going charity, a national charity which gives disabled children and young people the opportunity of participating in sport through the provision of specially built sports wheelchairs. The charity inspires disabled youngsters to compete in sporting events by also providing sports grants to help with their training.
“ I chose Get Kids Going as I have always loved participating in or watching sport,” said Jeremy.
Jack and Jeremy’s marathon challenge raised over £2,000 for the charity.
