Virtual London Marathon raises £4.5K for Alice’s Arc

On the 4th October 2020, Phil and Vicky Macqueen ran a 26 mile marathon as part of the first ever virtual London Marathon due to Covid-19. They ran in memory of their niece Jessica Macqueen who sadly passed away from rhabdomyosarcoma in October 2019. They completed the mammoth run in 4hrs 40minutes and 3 hours 30minutes respectively, raising £4.5K between them. They received tremendous support along the way with supporters handing out jelly beans and sporting ‘for Jess’ banners’ to spur them on. Special thanks to Dixie Grammar School in Leicestershire who donated £600.

Thank you so much for choosing to run for Alice’s Arc and helping us make progress towards achieving our mission of finding better treatments and a cure for rhabdomyosarcoma.
