The 2019 London Marathon

We'd like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to our team of six runners who took on this year's London Marathon in support of RedR UK.

The RedR UK team joined more than 40,000 other runners taking part in the iconic 26.2 mile route on Sunday 28 April. The team have spent months undergoing gruelling training and sacrificing their free time to raise vital funds to support our work.

So far, they have jointly raised almost £7000 with more to follow. If you want to reward their efforts, it is still not too late to support any one of them as their fundraising pages are open for another month. 

“When I came across RedR UK it immediately stood out to me. To know that by running I will be contributing to helping people when they really need it after disasters or in war torn areas when they have potentially lost everything seemed like such a worthwhile cause.”

 “RedR do great work helping people to help themselves.”

“I have worked at WSP for nearly 14 years and we have been a RedR UK corporate sponsor for as long as I can remember. Rather than the usual Wear Red for RedR I wanted to do something more substantial. This opportunity came along and was perfect, it also has really helped spread the word for a less know charity.”

 “There is an enormous sense of achievement when you cross that finish line. For me this came not only from collecting a finisher’s medal but also from knowing that my efforts had contributed to making the lives of people facing hardship far greater than a marathon, a little easier.”

“A lot of their (RedR UK) work probably goes by without people knowing or seeing it. Any help I can give makes their job that little bit easier.”

“ I’m proud to be part of the RedR UK London Marathon team, raising money to help the disaster-prone communities by giving aid workers and humanitarian organisations practical life-saving skills, advice and support, which help them prepare for, respond to and recover from natural and man-made disasters.”
