Last year two supporters of Children First Derby, Jane Clissold and Louise Toplis ran the London Marathon to raise money for Children First Derby.  As a result of this, Children First Derby decided to put a Ramathon Team together to raise funds for the charity, generously supported by the Vinci Foundation (via Actemium, East Midlands)

Thirteen people stepped forward and after months of training they  gathered at Pride Park last Sunday, 4th June, for Derby’s annual half marathon event.   They did brilliantly and between them they raised over £5,000!

Danny Smith, Chief Executive of Children First Derby, also a team member said,

” This, our first team entry to the Derby Ramathon, has exceeded all our expectations.  We recruited 14 brave runners, most of whom had never run a half-marathon before, and they have raised well over £5,000 for Children First Derby! 

This is fantastic and will make a great contribution to funding the vital work we do in Derby to support vulnerable children and families. 

A huge thank you to all our runners, their sponsors and our corporate sponsor for the team, the Vinci Foundation (via Actemium, East Midlands).”
