Well done to our Virgin London Marathon runner!

Monday, April 30th, 2012


We want to say a huge well done to Dawn, Katapult’s MD who completed her first Virgin London Marathon on Sunday in 5hrs 29 mins; as you can see from the photo above taken in the last two miles, she was holding up pretty well though very emotional by this time.

Though she says she enjoyed the whole experience (apart fromĀ  the training), we know that Dawn was ultimately spurred on by the possibility of what the funds she has raised will do for the endangered species charity REACT that she is supporting. By way of congratulating Dawn, you can still donate to the charity on her fundraising page and help her achieve her target. Find out more about The Red Endangered Animal Connection Trust.

We are very proud of Dawn and think that first large glass of wine on Sunday night was well deserved after 6 months of following a strict teetotal training plan and 6 am runs.

Has Dawn caught the marathon bug?! She has vowed that she will only do it again if another member of the Katapult team runs with her; watch this space….!
