Thank you to our incredible London Marathon team

A massive thank you to our 2024 London Marathon heroes, for going above and beyond for the cause of dyslexia, and for really making a difference.

Five intrepid runners signed up for the Helen Arkell team in this year’s London Marathon which took place on 21 April.

It’s a gruelling test of endurance and considered the pinnacle of achievement for many runners. All of our runners completed the course, encouraged by the incredible atmosphere and cheering crowds along the route.

Darren, Douglas, Jack, Jemima and Naomi 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 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 still have the opportunity to lend your support. Your contribution, regardless of its size, can really make a difference to our work. Together, we can create a lasting impact in the lives of those with dyslexia.
