On Sunday 9th October 2011, Barnaby Hope and 9 of his school friends ran their fastest to raise over £11,000 for ELoH.
Barnaby is the son of two of the charity’s founders, Sarah and Christopher Hope.The 10 boys raced alongside hundreds of others in the Royal Parks Foundation’s Pulse 3K run in Hyde Park. They were inspired to help other children who are less fortunate than themselves, who have suffered limb loss and require crucial prosthetic support to enable them to be active again. Barnaby and his friends trained hard in advance of the race, and as a result of their enormous efforts, raised enough money to provide over 360 children with a new leg.
ELoH is also hugely grateful to staff from The Daily Telegraph, including Rosie Millard and ELoH trustee Christopher Hope, who raised hundreds more for ELoH by running in the Royal Parks Foundation’s Half Marathon.
Thank you to Rosie, Christopher, Barnaby, Dominic, Ethan, Max C, Max H R, Max V, Joshua, Joseph, Herbie and Theo.
