  • Hi. 
    I live in Brighton and I was there supporting today. Fabulous to see so many runners supporting so many charities. The atmosphere was great. Well done to your son for running it. It was sooooo hot for them today. Such an important charity too xxxxx

  • Hello Jassoscared, 

    You can be so proud of your son completing the Brighton Marathon - I can't believe he did this without training! Without any training, I don't think I would have made it to the finishing line myself :silly:

    Please thank him on our behalf for his support and send him our congratulations. I hope he isn't too tired after this remarkable achievement. He raised an incredible amount and it's so nice of him to have wanted to give something back to help others who may be facing cancer. He sounds like an incredible lad and we are so pleased he was given the all clear. 

    Thank you so much for your kind words too. We're very touched by your kindness and generosity.
