The Fundraising Team, Sands | 17 April 2018

In the build up to the Virgin Money London Marathon we're meeting a few of our wonderful #TeamSands runners. If you're interested in becoming a #TeamSands supporter, check out our list of exciting fundraising events.

Why you are running for Sands?

In early December my sister in law and brother in law lost their baby boy at 37 weeks. To see this happen to two amazing people who were ready to be parents, to feel their grief is something words can’t describe. To think so many others have had to endure this, I never realised how often these sad events take place. I’m running to raise awareness of the work and support Sands offer.

The atmosphere and finish line!

What is your expected finishing time?

Around 4hours.
