Over £6K raised for GOSH!

RBC_Race for the Kids_Team celebratioWe did it!

A TechMarketView team consisting of Managing Director, Tola Sargeant, Chief Analyst, Georgina O’Toole, and Research Director, Marc Hardwick, along with our families, completed the RBC Race for the Kids 5k for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), on a very wet Saturday in Hyde Park over the weekend…

Our times ranged from a brilliant 24 minutes for the older boys – William and Josh – to a very respectable 56 minutes for Thomas, as he tackled the 5k on his first prosthetic leg. It brought home to us how much extra energy is required running on a prosthetic (apparently 60% extra!), and how much more you need to concentrate on your breathing and technique. Thomas is determined to become a Paralympian one day (he just can’t decide on which sport yet...) so he’ll be working on improving over the coming months and years!

We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from family, friends, clients, UKHotViews readers and social media followers. The generosity exhibited has been amazing. The total raised is still edging up but we have, so far, raised £6,330.21 from 108 extremely kind supporters. Thank you! An astounding amount that makes getting soaked to the skin all worthwhile!

There is still time to donate to help give other children the same wonderful care and support that Thomas has received at Great Ormond Street Hospital over the last decade. Here’s the link:
