Many congratulations to Youth Focus: North East trustee Marc Mason who managed to not only finish the London Marathon but do so in a time of 3 hrs and 41 minutes. Very many congratulations to the Mighty Marc!
So far, through sponsorship for the race, Marc has raised almost £750 for our work on loneliness. A huge thanks to Marc and all his supporters. Marc’s fundraising page is still open for donations and can be found on Justgiving.
Alex from the staff team was also competing. He was on for a sub-3 hour finish, when his hamstring went at 20 miles. A fantastic effort, even if he is now in a leg brace. We will be employing the country’s finest physios to get him fit for his world record attempt at the Great North Run in September.
If you feel passionate about improving the lives of young people, why not begin your own fundraising challenge? Speak to Caroline on 0191 477 9966 or email [email protected] for more details.
