Ramathon Victory

RamathonOn June 5th in the sweltering heat around Derby, team members; Yvonne, Jim, Laura & Simon completed the iconic 13.1m Ramathon race. They smashed their £600 target and raised £823.10 for The Maria Hanson Foundation.

The charity is self-funding, with a tiny team that is totally reliant on donations and fundraising activities. The Maria Hanson Foundation provides holidays by the seaside in Mablethorpe, which cost £200 per family. They offer families – who may have a loved one living with a life limiting condition and an uncertain future –the chance to spend time together. With a private beach hut, grocery vouchers and individual support for life limiting conditions, the focus is on ensuring that the time spent together is enjoyed and made memorable.

Yvonne said, “I have been a supporter of the Maria Hanson Foundation for many years. Maria and the team work tirelessly to help and support hundreds of individuals and their families and friends each year and I am proud to be part of a committed team”.

“On behalf of the team and the charity, I’d like to thank everyone who made a donation – it will make a big difference.”

For those of you who are friends with Yvonne on Facebook, she also recorded a live stream during the race which you can see on her page!
