2016 – You smashed it!

It’s not long now until the big day, and we want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and say a HUGE thank you for an incredible year of challenges!

2016 has been the year of amazing achievements. An incredible 204 runners took part in the London Marathon, raising £500,000 for our life saving research. We also became an official charity partner for the first time for the Royal Parks Half Marathon.

This year saw also our very first Swim Serpentine, as well as our first flagship skydiving event, the Big Pink Jump, which saw over 100 people take to the skies!

Take a look at our Christmas video, which is our way of saying a whopping thank you for all of your hard work!
