“Running the London Marathon for Coram was undoubtedly one of the highlights of my 49 plus tender years. Communication and support from the Coram team, from the build up of the event to the actual day of the race was simply phenomenal. Thank you Sarah and team for your support and kindness and for making this a day that I will never forget. If I can do this then so can anyone!”
