The Brighton Marathon!

09 Apr 2017

This year we had 6 brave heroes run the Brighton Marathon to raise money for INTO Giving projects, including 4 members of staff from the Brighton office, a student from St Georges and a friend of INTO Giving. 

 The weather was unexpectedly hot and Brighton was out in mass to watch the event, including members of INTO staff who came along to support their colleagues at various points along the route. Naomi from the INTO Giving team cycled the event with her partner Eric to keep up with the runners and track their progress. They were on hand to provide any extra water, food (and some pain relief at the 20 mile mark) that was needed, as well a putting out social media posts on the day. 

Ashley May had set up a stall halfway along the route selling homemade cakes and lemonade to spectators and raised over £70 on the day to raise money for African Adventures and INTO Giving through the Igive campaign

Brighton staff made a video to help with their fundraising efforts and in total the runners raised: £2855! Which will be matched and go to funding education projects across the world. 

 

 Tom, Val, Hind, Katy, Judy and Nora all completed the event in amazing time and we all headed to the beach after for a well deserved rest. Once they had recovered Hind and Judy wrote a joint blog to tell us more about their experience.
