As a growing charity the London Marathon (VLM) forms an important part of our annual events calendar. For the last two years The Haemochromatosis Society has been able to secure places in the VLM and to date our fantastic runners have raised over £30000 to support the work of the charity. As a major event, which generates world wide interest, it is also and fantastic awareness raising opportunity.
This year 5 runners will for Team Iron Overload. They are already training, raising funds and raising awareness of haemochromatosis amongst their families, friends, and other supporters.
Our amazing runners this year are Geoff Smith, Phil Causer, Catherine Barker, Bradley Parker and Hayley Stockford. The runners are from all over the country and represent a real cross section of our membership and supporters. You can find out more about them, read their stories and support their fundraising at https://www.justgiving.com/haemochromatosis-society
If you’re inspired to take on a challenge to raise awareness and funds for us why not join one of our upcoming events or join your own local event and we will support you.
