We would like to say a huge congratulations to Shaun Gorvin & his wife Lucy for completing the London Marathon last Sunday.
Hearing of Challenge20 and having obtained a place in the London Marathon through the ballot system, Shaun could think of no better cause than to try and raise some money for Kids for Kids.
Shaun’s time was 4 hours and 52 minutes, with Lucy beating him by just 30 seconds!
It was Shaun and his wife Lucy’s first marathon. Lucy is an NHS psychologist and when working with cardiac patients four years ago decided she should practice what she preached and start exercising. Shaun joined her on the ‘couch to 5k App’ and realising the physical and psychological benefits of running, has gradually built up the miles too. With regular Parkrun and other organised events, he feels running is now very social and much more fun than anticipated!
During the run they were cheered on by friends and family, and even managed to spot their grandchildren in the crowd!
In total, Shaun has managed to raise a HUGE £1,644.20! That’s a lot of goats!
These sponsorship funds will make such a difference to the lives of so many in Darfur. Thank you, Shaun!
