On a hot and sunny London Marathon, Livability were proud to enjoy the support of 157 runners on Sunday. Joining more than 40,000 marathoners, Team Livability ran the arduous 26.2 miles amid temperatures of 24.1C (75.3F). The team of runners were from destinations far and wide, including the UK, Brazil and America.
The team were also supported by a dedicated, wonderful group of supporters and well wishers. Joining us at the Team Livability cheering point and around the marathon course, the day was a wonderful celebration of family, friendship and community.
Thanks to your amazing running and fundraising, the running total of funds is £220,000 and the funds are still coming in. A big thank you to your supporters and everyone that’s backed you in your run and the charity cause so far.
