TechMarketView's 100K for GOSH!

GOSH RBC Race for the Kids logosWhomas in wheelchair post amputationThis weekend, the TechMarketView team and their families will be covering 100K between us. Some will walk, some will run, some will cycle. But we’ll all be doing it for the same cause. We will be participating in the virtual RBC Race for the Kids 2020 in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Thomas, the son of our Chief Analyst, Georgina O’Toole, will be attempting a 5K run. This time last year, he participated in the RBC Race for the Kids (alongside Georgina, our MD, Tola Sargeant, and Research Director, Marc Hardwick, and their families). At the time, it was just four months after his elective amputation, and less than two months after receiving his first prosthetic leg. Getting round was not easy for him, but he did it! This year, he has had his running blade for 10 months, and his becoming more and more active. He wants to try and run the whole way! Mum says she might struggle to keep up. What a difference a year makes.

Many of you know that Thomas, having been born with a congenital deformity of his left leg, has been under the care of Great Ormond Street Hospital’s orthopaedic department since he was one year old. He and his family are eternally grateful for the care and support they have received over more than a decade. The TechMarketView team has watched their journey and, once again, would like to do something to help support the amazing hospital and ensure that other children can continue to benefit from the wonderful staff and facilities.
