Medical support transforming lives

Richmond Running Festival Runners raise over £1,200 for The Victoria Foundation with more pledged to come in!

Published: 21 September 2016

The Victoria Foundation was delighted to once again have runners take part in London’s most exclusive running festival in the 10km, half marathon and marathon races starting in Kew Botanical Gardens …. A big thank you to our team of eight runners and their generous sponsors as they have raised over £1,200 with funds still coming in.

We were delighted to have Ivan Pryce Head Teacher of Strathmore School in Petersham run the marathon in aid of The Victoria Foundation as a thank for all the equipment the charity has funded to help support the pupils with complex needs who attend the school.

A big thank you also to university friends Will Smith and Tom Young who ran in the half marathon race, for Claire and her sister Suzanne who ran the 10km, to Con O’Brien, Richmond’s Town Centre Manager who also ran in the 10km race, to Natalie Simon who was running to raise funds for The Victoria Foundation as she has seen the impact of the charities support for medical students.

If you would like to run in aid of The Victoria Foundation in the Richmond Running Festival on 17th September 2017 please get in touch now – we have free places.
