We are delighted to share the news that Alex completed the virtual 40th annual London Marathon, on Sunday, 4th October 2020 and raised over £3,500 for Network for Africa.
26.2 miles equates to 42.165 kilometres and Alex ran the virtual London Marathon, as a series of eight 5ks over the course of the day with the help of his family and friends who supported him on each leg of the way. They have also helped to raise much needed funds for our mental health projects. Network for Africa is incredibly grateful to you all.
Back in 2018
On Sunday, 22 April 2018 Chrystal Ding ran the London Marathon for Network for Africa and raised over £3,000.
Looking back, Chrystal told us ‘I had always thought of myself as one of those people who just doesn’t get on with sport and certainly not with long distance. A week or two into training, once I had cleared the 5k mark, I realised this was nonsense. The biggest surprise to me was quite how much I would enjoy the training and the sheer joy of knowing that there was something I would do 4 times a week that would sharpen my mind and my focus and bring me peace in a way I’d never experienced before’.
