Last week, the fundraising team met at Wigmore to hold a Marathon Lunch & Learn for potential Team Starfish sign-ups. Not only did the group hear from the charity team, but also the TUI Trotters running club, and Sean Parker, for whom 2017 will be his second London Marathon.


“I will NEVER EVER forget the atmosphere of the London marathon. Throughout the 26.2 mile course the crowd is at least 3-4 people deep cheering and supporting you on. I had my name on my FHA running top (all provided by the FHA) and I could hear my name being chanted the whole way round the course. I felt like I was famous! The FHA had two cheering points as well at Mile 6 and Mile 24, and with fewer runners running for the FHA compared to the likes of NSPCC and Cancer Research UK, the FHA team have their beady eyes looking out for you and will take some snaps too. Great memorabilia to remember the day.”
– Louise Dwyer, 2016 TUI Team Starfish runner
