We are pleased to announce that the YCO London Marathon team have all successfully completed the Marathon
despite record breaking temperatures.

The sun was shining (a little bit too much!) on all the team and their supporters this year, with new runners Portia Hart and Katrina Arens completing the race in 4h10 and 4h34
respectively while Gary Wright (taking part for the third year running) and Glenn Trunley both set personal
bests. Special commendations go to Carl Gardner for finishing in a fantastic 3h29 and Mike Goulden who
unfortunately blew out his knee at the 16 mile mark but still managed to hobble round the rest of the course
to complete the race in a very painful 7 hours!

This fantastic effort means that YCO has now raised over £110,000 for the WellChild Charity in the last three
years and there are still many more donations coming in. On behalf of the team we would like to say a big thank
you to everyone who has shown their kind support, your generous contributions really helped to motivate the
entire team to complete this very difficult event.

For those of you who have made a pledge or who have not yet had a chance to make a donation it’s not too late to support this worthy cause, just see the details below on
