Alice’s Arc London Landmarks Half Marathon team raise over £19K

 

10 runners took on this challenge in support of Alice’s Arc and it was so touching to cheer the team on.

On Sunday 1st August 2021, a team of ten runners took on the challenge of the London Landmarks Half Marathon. This is a truly magical event bringing together such important charities and causes and it was a pleasure to have an Alice’s Arc team there for the first time.

The team comprised several fathers running in honour of their children – David Wakeling for Alice, Andy Stewart for Ruby, Declan Mulholland for Mollie and Simon-Peter Edwards for Esther. In addition, several family members ran for Faye. Other runners included a work colleague of David and two 17 year old girls who attend the school that Alice attended.
They raised a grand total of over £19K which is such a significant amount. It will go towards our £1.1million pledge for innovative rhabdomyosarcoma research that could potentially make a real difference to children diagnosed in the future.
Thank you so much to our runners and supporters. You inspire our work everyday. We will do whatever it takes to make a difference for children diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma in the future.
