We announced our first winner back in October for the ‘Dream Marathon‘ competition and this month the lucky winner is Sarah Johnson! Sarah has won her dream marathon experience including £100 of Adidas kit, two nights in Central London, upgrade to the Green Start and entry to Virgin Money’s after-party.
Sarah is running the Virgin Money London Marathon for her Brother Chris. He sadly died of Bowel Cancer aged only 30 earlier this year. Sarah says: “Ever since Chris died, running has been super hard. When you run you are alone with your own thoughts; which at times can be liberating, at others debilitating.”
Sarah has decided to turn her running into a positive and this is why she’s taking on the challenge of the Marathon distance. She’s running for MacMillan Cancer Support and says that: “Although given a terminal diagnosis, Chris spent much of his time helping others; via social media and raising money himself. I want to remember and celebrate his attitude and resolve”.
MacMillan Cancer Support have a motto that Sarah strongly believes and so did Chris ‘no-one should face cancer alone’.
You can show your support and help Sarah achieve her fundraising target here.
