London Marathon 2018 – Neil did it!

Here are some pictures of our fantastic supporter and amazing runner Neil who ran the London Marathon raising over £3,000 for Light.

It was the hottest marathon on record, yet Neil kept going through the pain still smiling despite needing some medical treatment at the end.

We want to thank Neil, his family and every single person who supported him and Light. You are all amazing and the money raised is going to make a real difference to the support we are able to offer mums and families across Sheffield and beyond – thank you!

Please Vote for Light

Run the London Marathon 2018 for Light!

Have you always wanted to run the London Marathon? Would you like to help support Light raise much needed funds? We need YOU! Light has secured a charity place in the London Marathon 2018 and we would love to hear from you if you would like to run for us.

If you are interested all we ask is that you pledge to raise £1000 for us and submit a short description of why you’d like to run for Light (max 200 words). Please let us have this by Monday 16th October and we will be back in touch that week to let you know if you have been successful.

Then it would just be a case of getting those running shoes on and training hard for the world famous race on Sunday 22nd April 2018. In return we will do lots to promote and motivate you, keep you updated on how the money you raise will help those we support and provide you with a Light T-shirt and other goodies for the day.

Contact us for more information on 0114 438 8962 and send your submission to contactus@lightsheffield.org.uk

Thank you!
