2014 London Marathon team

Photos and comments from the 2014 Miscarriage Association London Marathon team.

Team member Carol McEvoy reflected on her experience:

“Running the marathon, albeit injured, was amazing – something I would love to repeat one day. The knowledge that my run was to aid a charity, I wish I had known about whilst suffering 3 miscarriages on the trot, truly made it more gratifying – hopefully awareness of your cause has been raised and long may it continue to do so.”

Between them our 2104 team raised £50,216 in sponsorship, and we were able to collect a further £7,186 in Gift Aid – a wonderful total of £57,402. As veteran M.A. runner Terry Axon (below) commented:

“I think everyone who runs a marathon does and should feel proud, it is a great achievement no matter how long it takes. And a fantastic total for the M.A. – even in these hard times people are still willing to dig deep for good causes.”
