This year Able Child Africa had a record-equalling 38 incredible runners who completed the TCS London Marathon 2023. We want to send our biggest congratulations and thank you to our running team.
Our amazing team of fundraisers came from all over the UK and beyond and collectively raised over £70,000 for Able Child Africa. As the marathon approached, the weather changed from sun and blues skys to torrential rain, eventually settling on cloudy conditions with showers. Despite this, the runners – and Able Child Africa cheering squad – did what they promised and collected their medals at the end. From start to finish, our marathon team also persevered in their fundraising efforts and showed fantastic support for our cause: to improve the lives of children with disabilities in Africa.
We move straight on to recruiting for the TCS London Marathon 2024. See here for more information on how to apply.
David – “We should thank you not only for your help and support you have given us all but especially for the work you do with some of the world’s most vulnerable children. As for this wee 57 year old who managed my best marathon time (4’04’’) well, I’m still on cloud nine!”
Tom – “I had a blast and thank you so much for having me be a part of the team! I will cherish all the memories from this past weekend!!”
Chris – “Thank you, Able Child Africa! Wonderful support!!”
Jesse – “Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful organisation. The journey that started 3 yrs ago will be all worth it when I see you guys at Mile 25. Keep up the great work at Able Child Africa!”
