We ran the Los Angeles Marathon on the 20th March, and it went really well (we ran around together as a three and finished in 4hrs 20mins) – and we raised a fantastic £5691.15 (including gift aid) for CRY!
As you know, we ran the marathon in loving memory of our dear friend Rob Allan, nearly a year to the date since he passed away last March. We also hosted a Oscar themed fundraiser in London before we went over to LA, to raise money for CRY – and Oscar night itself was on Rob’s birthday. Friends, family and supporters got behind the event and the cause, and have all donated their hard earned money to CRY – the support from everyone has been amazing.
We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved – but we’re really pleased that this money is going to such a great cause, and we fully support and thank you for everything you and CRY are doing for other families that have been through what the Allan family went through last year.
Andrew Baker, Andrew Deadman and I grew up and went to school together at the Howard of Effingham, Surrey and is how we are all now friends. I’ve attached a (slightly embarrassing) photo we took with our medals.
