Our fantastic Run to the Beat runner Rachael Foggo has completed the 13 miles half-marathon last Sunday, 26th September 2010. Well done Rachael!!

This is what she said: “I am happy to be able to report that I completed the very hilly 13.1 miles in arctic conditions yesterday in 2 hours 4 minutes and 32 seconds. Despite having nearly frozen to death on the start line (they ended up giving out the silver space blankets at the start!) I managed to get round the course without incident. I didn’t beat my personal best, but put this down to my sub-two hour time being run on the flat – not the lack of training while on my two-week holiday.”

Furthermore – we now just heard from Rachael that the pharma company she works for – Celgene – have very generously offered to double whatever Rachael manages to fundraise. So if you have not yet donated to her Virgin Giving website – it is not too late: please do so via the Virgin Money Giving page Rachael has created..

Please forward the link to friends, family, colleagues, neighbours – this will not only help us financially but also continue raising awareness of MDS everywhere!!!

Rachael added “I still have donations coming in, and Celgene having agreed to double the final amount, I can’t yet tell you yet the exact amount I raised.” Again – very well done and thank you very much to both Rachael and Celgene. And of course should you wish to help raise funds in future – like Rachael – please let us know in advance so we can advertise it on our website!!
