Richard Whitehurst to run London Marathon

Richard Whitehurst to run London Marathon for MedEquip4KidsOur supporter Richard Whitehurst is taking on the impressive challenge of running the Virgin Money London Marathon 2021 for us this Sunday 3 October. Richard is a member of Bowdon Business Club, which has generously supported MedEquip4Kids for the past few years.

Richard says: “I was delighted when MedEquip4Kids offered me the chance to run in the London Marathon. It’s always been a challenge I wanted to take on. To tell the truth, I’m a terrible long distance runner, but started racing triathlons a couple of years ago, and Evelyn [our project co-ordinator] saw me on a training run with my dog. MedEquip4Kids is special to me because it was founded at Booth Hall Hospital, where my Nan used to be a teacher.”

We wish Richard all the very best for the big day. You can sponsor him here.

“The materials provided greatly help with the therapeutic process and engaging children, young people and their families in therapeutic work. The young people greatly appreciate having this equipment to use within their sessions. Many of the young people we see have a history of trauma including neglect and being able to access materials that they can use and enjoy is of great benefit and hopefully assists us to reinforce the messages of their worth as their self-concept is often very low.”
