Seb Owen has completed the London Marathon – in the process raising over £4,500 for MPT. What a performance!
Seb writes as follows:
I just wanted to say a final huge thank you for your support during my Marathon for Mityana. As I’ve already said, it really made a huge difference – especially in the final two miles when I just wanted to curl up in a ball on the side of the road and suck my thumb.
Thanks to your incredible generosity, we’ve already raised over £4,500 including Gift Aid (with more to collect) which I believe is sufficient for three water tanks to provide a safe and reliable water source and make a massive difference to the lives of many villagers in the Mityana region of Uganda. Thank you!
The day itself was an incredible experience and I feel privileged to have been a part of it. The crowds were incredible and – to those disappointed at the end of the short heat wave – I have to say that the weather was pretty perfect for running. For those interested, I managed to get around in just over 4 hours and 11 minutes and achieved my main aim of running every single step of the way. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Thank you once again,
