Amongst the 40,000 runners taking part in the world-renowned London Marathon were a group of seven men and women who decided to run for The Disabilities Trust. So far, the team has raised an impressive £17,441, collectively tracked 180 miles and run for a total of 37hrs.
Aditya Khanna, who to date has raised an amazing £5,370, summed it up when he said: “I really struggled the last 12km due to the heat - apparently it was the hottest London Marathon recorded - but managed to bring it home, and more importantly, I was honoured to have been able to raise money for such a worthy cause.... thank you all for your generous support.”
Fundraising Manager, Hayley Wicker-Bradbury, expressed her gratitude to all who took part: “Congratulations TeamDT, you are all truly amazing. I know they have been training in freezing temperatures only to see the hottest London Marathon on record, and will have had to push yourselves to cross the finish line. The money and awareness you have raised will make a huge difference to the men and women we support and huge thanks go to each and every one of you.”
The Disabilities Trust provides innovative care, rehabilitation and support solutions for people with profound physical impairments, acquired brain injury and learning disabilities as well as children and adults with autism. In some cases, runners have chosen to support the Trust as a whole; others have raised money for specific services and all will fund items which will enhance the lives of our service users.
