London Marathon Sunday 22 April 2018
 
Our five 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Runners not only raised over £22,300 for their chosen parts of the Trust but also inspired many supporters to register their interest in a 2018 Gold Bond place, all of which were snapped up in record time! Many thanks again to the ‘fab five’ in 2017!
 
In 2018 seven supporters will bravely take on the 26 mile challenge on Sunday 22 April 2018 for their chosen part of Whittington Health. We are very grateful to them for taking on this real test of endurance, all their training, preparation and fundraising.
 
You can read about our inspirational runners and the department, service or ward they supported and also sponsor them via their fundraising page;
Tara Boyle
Tara is running in aid of our Maternity Unit and Special Care Baby Unit. Tara says, ‘I am taking on the 26.2 miles of the Marathon in aid of the wonderful Whittington Health Maternity Unit and Special Care Baby Unit, where I used to work. The Whittington provides fantastic care to women and babies so your sponsorship will go towards this specialist care. This is a huge personal challenge and I wanted to give back to this extremely worthy cause.’

Sebastian Delamothe
Sebastian is running in aid of our Maternity Services. Sebastian says, ‘I am running for Maternity Services because I want to support this ward that provides such amazing care. As a son of a retired doctor from the ward I feel a special attachment as I know how hard everyone works there. I am delighted to be running for such a worthy cause.'
Narendra Pisal
Narendra is running in aid of our Women’s Health Services. Narendra says, ‘Having worked at the Whittington for the last 16 years, I am immensely proud of the hard work, caring approach and clinical excellence of everybody who works here. I wish there was more money available for even better resources, and the money I raise through this marathon can go a long way towards improving services. I am honoured to represent my NHS hospital in this event.’
If our runners have inspired you to take on this amazing challenge you can register your interest for a 2019 Gold Bond now.
 
As these are guaranteed places for such a special ‘once in a lifetime’ event we ask participants aim to raise a minimum of £1,800.00 for a department, service or ward that is close to their heart. We ask you to pay a registration fee and will support participants in their fundraising as much as possible. Experience shows us that sharing a target with family, friends and colleagues is successful and helps spur participants on with their training and on the big day! All runners will benefit from;
  • A ‘Runners Reception’ a few weeks before the big day giving everyone a chance to meet their fellow runners, share training tips and buddy up.
  • A personalised running vest.
  • A cheering point on the route.
  • A reception near the finish line with food and drink for all runners.
For more information or to register your interest, please call or email Graham Brogden, Head of Fundraising on 020 7288 3402 or graham.brogden@nhs.net.
