Our 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.
