When the inaugural London Landmarks Half Marathon was announced in 2017, the EHE Rare Cancer Charity immediately registered for 20 places. Concerns about filling these places were soon put to one side as over 30 EHE supporters volunteered to run. Then a good friend of one of our member’s asked if she too could run for the charity using her personal place, and so the EHE21 was born.
This awesome group set about training through the long cold winter nights. At the same time, the charity was organising a get together of EHE family and friends on race day to man the EHE Cheer Station, and generally make lots of noise while supporting the runners. Of course the event was also about fundraising and all 21 runners established fundraising pages.
The day itself was amazing. All 21 runners completed the race; the cheer station did its job; and the group between them raised over £28,000 for EHE research. We send huge thanks to everybody who supported the runners on the day or who made such fantastic donations.
But most of all we send thanks to the EHE21 who worked so hard and ran with such spirit for our EHE Family worldwide. They are pictured here in all their running glory.
