KidsOut would like to thank all runners who took part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 12th October.
The Royal Parks Marathon is a spectacular 13.1 mile route taking in views from London’s world famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, London Eye and Houses of Parliament to name a few. As the sun was shining on the streets of London, the exuberant crowd cheered on the 16,000 marathon runners as they strived their way to the finish line. Pictured to the right is a group of KidsOut runners after completing their 13.1 mile trek.
The KidsOut team has raised over £1800 for disadvantaged children across the UK which is still increasing. The marathon runners all took on the Half Marathon challenge for different reasons; such as the Toy Box manger Sandra Doherty who ran to raise for the Toy Box service which is very close to her heart, while Fundraising Executive, Louise Collins and Business Administrator, Lucy Breeden ran to give themselves a new challenge this year.
