With a big smile and plenty of energy, BBC’s Ellie Price ran the London Marathon for ELoH on the 24th of April. She did not only complete the Marathon below the 4 hours golden mark (3h55min!), she also smashed her £500 fundraising target. All in all, she raised an amazing £3,200 for child amputees, money that could provide prosthetic legs for a total of 40 children. Ellie says:
“Don’t be fooled by the smile, the marathon was really hard work. But it’s also true that the crowd, shouting my name as they read my ELoH vest, also helped carry me over the last very difficult 10 miles.”
“And anyway, all the people who sponsored me had been so generous, I could hardly let them down, could I?!”
We definitely agree. Thanks everyone who contributed to Ellie’s fundraiser and who cheered for her along the way. And huge thank you to Ellie for running 27 miles for child amputees!
