Congratulations to Katie Aartse-Tuyn and Ritchie Jackman who were both brave enough to run the London Marathon and raise money for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity. We are very happy that we were able to make not only one, but two dreams come true and raise money for a good cause, all at the same time.
Katie managed to finish the marathon in 3hrs 41min 38sec and raised a total of £1500 for the charity. Ritchie was very close behind and finished in 3hrs 57min 4sec and raised a total of £1400 for the charity. Both finished in very respectable times and raising nearly £3000 between them was simply brilliant. We are very thankful to our runners and all the supporters who were involved as we couldn’t have done it without you.
Below are some pictures and you will notice that that it is hard to tell that they had just completed a marathon. How do you manage to look that great after completing a 26 mile run?! We love your determination and are very proud of you both.
