Thank you to our amazing London Marathon 2023 team

A massive thank you to our 2023 London Marathon team, for going above and beyond for the cause of dyslexia, and for really making a difference in the world.

Six intrepid heroes signed up for the Helen Arkell team in this year’s London Marathon which took place on 23 April.

David, Debbie, Eskil, Justin, Sam and Steve all showed incredible determination to help us fulfil our mission to transform the lives of children and adults with dyslexia.

The months of intense training in order to manage the 26.2 miles in one piece involved running whatever the weather, on dark evenings after work and chilly early mornings.

On the day itself, the team all completed one of the greatest challenges there is, collecting their hard earned medals before celebrating with proud family and friends.

You can read their stories by clicking on their names below, and this will give you an insight into their own individual, personal reasons for putting their bodies on the line in this way.

And they would all be hugely grateful if you contribute a little something to their fundraising pages, because raising sponsorship can be as challenging as the running itself.

Teddy Arkell’s Big Walk for Dyslexia

Our Big Walk for Dyslexia is on the afternoon of Sunday 21 May and we’d love you to come and join us! We will be walking in beautiful Farnham Park – just a stone’s throw from the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity in West Street. And this year, we’re thrilled to be part of the Farnham Walking Festival.

As you know, Teddy Edward Arkell Bear loves to be involved where he can so he’s decided to take over the Big Walk and would like your furry teddy friends to come along too. There’ll be tea and cake at the end (if Teddy hasn’t already eaten it all).

Join in wherever you are!

If you can’t attend on the day, why not do a ‘virtual’ walk for us and tag us as you share your photos on social media?

This is all to raise money to help support adults and children with dyslexia and to raise awareness of dyslexia and the work we do here at Helen Arkell so we would love your support.

It’s a lovely, fun family day out – dogs are welcome too. You can find out more and register here.

Good luck and enjoy the walk! It will be great to see all your pictures on social media so be sure to tag us.
