Prospect Brokers would like to congratulate Maddison Field who completed the Virgin London Marathon on April 22nd 2018. Maddie ran on behalf of Children with Cancer UK, and raised around £2,500 for the charity. Children with Cancer UK are the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Almost 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. The money raised will go towards determining causes, finding cures and providing care for those children with Cancer.
Maddie began training in October 2017 facing typical Winter conditions and following a training programme that meant five runs a week. The cold and wet Winter conditions could not have been any further from the Marathon conditions on the day. The 2018 race was officially recorded as the hottest on record.
The conditions were incredibly tough with race organisers advising against fancy dress and encouraging people to revise the target times they had set. Maddie managed to finish in 5 hours and 4 minutes and along with thousands of others did brilliantly in the very challenging conditions. Children with Cancer UK have now raised over £2,000,000 thanks to everyone’s generosity and support. Our congratulations again to Maddie on this fantastic achievement!
