Thank you to everyone who took part in our events this year

Thank you to everyone who took part in our events this year

This year we've been really lucky to have received incredible support from people who have chosen to take on personal challenges.  Our 2016 events calendar began when several people chose to run the Vitality North London Half Marathon on Sunday 20th March, starting and finishing their run at Wembley Stadium.  Then on Saturday 4th June members of staff from a local company, NP Group (pictured), showed their support by taking part in Nightrider, cycling a gruelling 60km through London's streets at night and raising more than £1,500 to go towards our work.

NP Group Office Manager, Claire Turner, said, 'We did this ride in the hope of raising as much money as possible for UCL Hospitals Charitable Foundation.  We believe the work they do has such a positive effect on all those who benefit from it.  NP are situated just across the road from the hospital and have built up strong links with members of the team, seeing first-hand the great things they do.  It was a long old journey starting at 11.30pm and finishing at 5.30am.  We had a lot of fun though and it was lovely to see parts of London that I hadn't seen in ages.  The best thing was seeing Tower Bridge as the sun was coming up.'

On Sunday 10th July we had runners in the Vitality British 10k London Run, one of the most spectacular runs in the UK through car free streets and past amazing landmarks, and on Sunday 9th October more dedicated supporters ran the Royal Parks Half Marathon, enjoying London's beautiful and most famous parks.

As well as saying thank you to everyone who participated in the organised events mentioned above, we would like to express our gratitude to all those people who have signed up indendently to events around the country and abroad to raise money for us.
