A Big Thank You to all our Runners!

On Sunday 2nd April our Cerebra Superhero fundraisers took to the streets of London to run the Landon Landmarks Half Marathon.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all our wonderful runners; Darcie Jago, Kate Hitchcock, Isaac Rayworth, Nadya Kaya, Victoria Fenech Buontempo, Caroline Baker, Charlotte Wailes and Kimberly Mendonca.

You’ve all done wonders for children living with a brain condition and their families!
Thanks so much as well to everyone who got behind our runners by making a donation!

If you'd like to take part in a similar event for Cerebra, we would love to hear from you! Please drop an email to [email protected].
