On Sunday 12th April a team of four ran the Brighton Marathon to raise money for YMCA DLG. And two of our Housing Support workers from Mid Sussex did the 10k race before the marathon. It was a great day for a marathon, the sun was shining but there was still a cooling breeze in the air. Brighton locals and visitors were out in force supporting the runners and the atmosphere was truly amazing.
All our runners did really well, finishing the race with good times. The best marathon time of 03:20:38 was set by our runner Gareth Brown who is married to our Tenancy Support Worker Andrea Lane.
Three of our marathon runners were running to raise money for YMCA DLG Project Green. Our Engagement & Learning Coordinator Jason Anderton and Sean and Marisa Tanner have been working hard over the past few months doing fundraising. They plan to use the fundraising money to buy a new shed for the Project Green allotment. You can still support them, just click here to make a donation.
Jo Woodhams and Andrew Beales did the 10k race to raise money for a football team that was set up by Mid Sussex residents – The Mid Sussex Maroons. Click here if you would like to support them and make a donation.
