Brilliant British 10k runners
On Sunday 9 July, five of our runners waved Young Epilepsy banners with pride having completed the British 10k.
Well done to Bob Gibbs and Jon Nock from Abacus Baths, Andrew Neville and Kamila Marks of catering equipment firm Nevilles, and Young Epilepsy’s Anna Croghan!
Bob Gibbs, Abacus Healthcare, says:
The idea to run the British 10k was given to Jon and I when we visited the Young Epilepsy specialist education facility, St Piers School and College, following the installation of our Gemini hi-lo bath. Linda Leadbetter, OT Assistant and Moving and Handling Trainer, suggested we take up the challenge so we immediately obliged. We saw just how much the young people benefited from products like ours, so it was important to do our bit to improve their lives further.The race itself was great fun despite being quite challenging in the heat. Running with over 10,000 entrants and passing so many famous landmarks in central London made it very memorable. Thank you to all our fellow Young Epilepsy runners and the supporters who cheered us on along Embankment – helping us to keep going in the final stages. A fantastic experience and I am already training for the Woburn Abbey triathlon in support of Young Epilepsy.
Fundraising in the community a great way to spread the word and raise money at the same time. Whether you want to run a few miles, bake cakes or host a pub quiz, do it for Young Epilepsy!
