Hear from previous runners

I ran the London Marathon for Mencap in 2017 and am so proud of my achievement.
I got great fundraising tips from the team and they helped me when the training got tough! I chose to run for Mencap as I know how vital it is for them to raise funds so they can support people with a learning disability to live fulfilling lives.
I've seen first hand how the right support can have a massive impact on someone's life, such as being helped to get a job or finding leisure services in the community and that's why I support Mencap.

- Christina, 2017 London Marathon runner
