Virgin Money London Marathon 26 April 2015

Martin Cater, our Young Carers Support Worker, will be running in the Virgin Money London Marathon on 26 April 2015, raising vital funds for Young Carers.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race. The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.

Virgin Money London Marathon 2015

This is Martin’s first marathon, so we need to give him all the support we possible could, before and after the race.

Martin says:

As a Young Carers Support Worker, I help to support young people between the ages of 5 and 18 who have a caring role. These young people are often unable to have the same experiences as other children their own age. Their caring role means that they take on extra responsibilities at home and are exposed to complex situations that far exceed that of an ‘average’ child.        

The money you donate will go towards activities for young and adult carers; these aim to give respite from daily caring responsibilities (even if it’s just for an hour) and the chance to socialise with others who understand what it means to be a carer.

All donations will be really appreciated (and any invitations for a massage accepted!) as I try to reach this obscene target of running 26 miles.

Oh and one more thing, I’ll be running the marathon in Lederhosen… lederhosen
