Thank You Alex - Marathon Success!

Congratulations Alex Raikes on a fantastic run in the 2018 Virgin London Marathon on Sunday!

Alex - soon to join the board of Trustees of Children of Colombia - completed the 26.2 mile race in just 4.18 hours - a magnificent result on a very hot spring day.

Alex exceeded her fund-raising target, raising just over £9,000 (including Gift Aid) for Children of Colombia and Chron's and Colitis UK.

Friends and family were cheering Alex on and waiting on the finish line to congratulate her on an incredible effort and achievement, including proud mum Francisca Sankson, Chairman of Children of Colombia. (pictured below)

A big thank you Alex from everyone at Children of Colombia.
