Well done and thank you to our 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon Team

Congratulations to our 1250 runners who took part in the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday!

It was a fantastic day and we were so pleased to see so many of the team around the route and afterwards.

Your support helps us to be there for children when they need us most and move closer to a world where no child loses their life to cancer.

We captured so many special moments. Take a look at the photos and our video of the day.

Despite much progress being made as to the treatment of luekaemia, certain subsets of this type of #cancer maintain a poor survival outcome. That's why we're funding Dr David Clynes' #research to combat this. Find out more about the research project at: https://t.co/Cr83c0mnJg https://t.co/UIgbqCUin4
