Virgin Money London Marathon
Our team for 2017 were totally amazing....
Thank you to all of the team, it was amazing to be part of your journey to the London Marathon.
The marathon was one of the hardest things I've ever done but raising so much money for Rethink Mental Illness in memory of my dad was an absolute honour!! – Sarah Atta
Our hero Josef Faulkner went even further and ran from Leeds to London to take his place in our London Marathon team. In total he ran 262 miles in 10 days including the London Marahon! He said:
The marathon was the most incredible experience and one that I will never ever forget. The crowds, the sites, the other runners and the whole occasion were unbelievable even more so because this was the mental health marathon! I am so proud to have run for Rethink Mental Illness and to know that the money raised and the conversations started will make a difference tells me that this is only the start of the fundraising journey!
