Marathon achievements

Competition for our precious Silver Bond place in the London Marathon was high this year. In the end, we chose Ryan King to represent the LJMC and we are delighted to report that he finished the route in 4:53 hours.

Ryan had personal reasons for running for the LJMC as his mother, Karen, had been treated here a few years ago. Karen's best friend, Emily, had also been treated here a few months previously and the two ladies were keen to support Ryan's fundraising too.

With the help of Justify hair salon in Ruislip, they organised a ladies evening in the salon with treatments and entertainment, raising £4,000.

Other friends joined in the fundraising, including Meat Like it Used To Be who celebrated St Patrick's Day with a fundraising day at the shop. With further support from friends and family, Ryan raised £6,000.

Megan Bowen and Simon Smith were both fortunate enough to secure places in the ballot and chose to raise money for the LJMC through their participation in this iconic event.

Their choice of charity was a great motivation along the gruelling route and enabled them to finish in 4:25 hours and 5:58 hours respectively.

Megan and Simon each added a further £1,250 to the LJMC's 2017 Marathon fundraising.
