London Marathon 2014
14 April 2014
A huge THANK YOU to the 43 brave runners who completed the London Marathon 2014 for Brain Research Trust.
Some were running for the first time, some had run the course before, but for everyone it was the culmination of many months of hard work. We have been immensely proud of our team for putting their all into their training and fundraising and it was fantastic to be able to join them in celebrating their achievement. And the sun came too! We were also delighted to meet so many of our runners and their supporters both at our cheer point on the Embankment at mile 25, and at our post-race reception at The Connection at St Martins.
Our team this year has been the biggest yet for Brain Research Trust, and although we are still waiting for final pledges to come in, we already know that it has been a record-breaking year for fundraising too. We'll make an announcement of the total raised in the next few weeks.
Thanks again to everyone who made the day so special. Find yourselves in our photos on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/brainresearchtrust
