On the 23rd April 2017, Simon Harrod will be swapping his suit for running shorts as he completes the iconic Virgin London Marathon. The famous course runs over a distance of 26 miles and 385 yards throughout the finest sights of London and is considered one of the top six marathons in the world.
While many of us would quake in fear of the blisters, burns and muscle soreness, Simon is putting himself through the paces as he raises money for the wonderful and well-deserving charity; Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity.
Rays of Sunshine work hard to make the wishes of seriously ill children in the UK to become true. From personal wishes for children to a treat for a whole hospital ward, Rays of Sunshine host a wide range of events such as large outings, concerts and all sorts of magical wishes as they believe every child deserves a precious memory to cherish.
As wishes are as individual as the child themselves, all donations, whether big or small, can really help to make a difference. By sponsoring Simon’s epic plight, you can support Rays of Sunshine’s work to grant their 6,000th wish and many more afterwards. With over 49,000 children living in the UK with a serious of life-limiting illness, your donation and Simon’s efforts can make all the difference to making more children’s dreams come true.

We wish Simon all the best for the London Marathon and know that the difference he’s making to the charity will keep him fighting all the way to finish line.
Good Luck Simon!
