Thomas' third 5K for GOSH

Thomas promoting RBC Race for the Kids 2021Two years ago, only three months after having his left leg amputated through-knee, Thomas completed the RBC Race for the Kids in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital. He made it round the 5K Hyde Park course in an hour, despite struggling with his first real experience of running. He was supported by a fantastic TechMarketView team.

A year later, he had received his first prosthetic activity blade, and in the midst of the pandemic, he took part in the event once again, albeit virtually (and on a much hillier route!). He smashed his previous time, finishing the 5K in 38 minutes. This year he will, once again be participating in the virtual event, and hopes to raise more money for the hospital that looked after him (and his family) for over a decade of his life.

Thomas is the son of our Chief Analyst, Georgina O’Toole. Many of you will have tracked his progress over the years. We are excited to see if he manages to beat his personal record once again, having had a bit more running experience. He’s not looking forward to tackling those hills again so any donation you can make to spur him on would be greatly appreciated. You can find his fundraising page here - Race for the Kids – O’Toole Family. Mum might need a bit of encouragement too! We have been so thrilled with the support offered by TechMarketView readers in the past. 

If you can support Thomas, you will be providing much needed funds to a hospital that provides amazing care – via fantastic facilities and staff. Thomas is really keen to ensure other children, and their families, receive the same level of support as he did. This year, Thomas is also very proud to be supporting the team at RBC Race for the Kids to help get others signed up to join in too (see photo).
