McKeown Team MacmillanPublished: 1 Nov 2020
Since our first involvement as Team Mckeown with Macmillan back in 2003, there is no doubt that the Virgin Money London Marathon is one of our team's most anticipated events in our fundraising calendar.
Since 2005, we have steadily built our team number each year from two to thirty-two last year — there is no sign of that number dropping any time soon.
We always have returning runners, as well as multiple newbies each year. That adds another splash of magic to the occasion.
The event itself is a phenomenal experience. The effort that the team at Macmillan put into the preparation, support and celebration of each participant's involvement is exceptional.
From signing up to stepping into the recovery centre, the journey Macmillan offers is much, much more than 26.2 miles around the course.
To think that with every step of that journey we are helping people living with cancer makes the finish line almost touchable from Greenwich Park.
