Virgin Money London Marathon

Thank you for an amazing 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon. You have made us very proud overcoming huge personal challenges to take part in this tough event for Addaction. We had a sensational Marathon day, raised vital funds for our work and made some wonderful friends with those running or supporting from the side lines throughout the build-up.

We were thrilled by your tenacity, creative ideas and enthusiasm for our cause - one which many of you know about through personal heart breaking experiences. But as you showed by completing this challenge, recovery brings freedom - to strive for great things and achieve what you did not think was possible.
