London Runners Raise Thousands

KidsOut would like to thank all runners who took part in the London Marathon on Sunday 13th April. 

They all took on the challenge of running the 26 mile route around London’s most iconic landmarks to bring fun and happiness into the lives of disadvantaged children. One of the runners, Rhodri Stephens, ran the whole race for the first time in a Billy Barratt costume but the heavy costume and high temperatures didn’t effect his performance throughout the race. He said; "It was very hot and painful but an excellent day and I really enjoyed it." KidsOut appreciates his continued fundraising efforts as he also ran in the Royal Parks Half Marathon last year. 

He has currently raised £1020 through Just Giving for KidsOut but this is still increasing, help him reach his target here.

We would also like to thank, Sarah MurrayRhian Davies and Mike Brough who also ran in the London Marathon and helped to raise crucial funds for KidsOut. Each of our runners have peaged to raise £1500 for KidsOut but they still need your support to help them reach their targets; it’s still not too late donate! (Just click on their name to be directed to their donation page.)
