We have completed the CRUK Shine event and so far raised £1,162!

by Sue Akam

The team of Wickedwebbers headed for the O2 on Saturday night for 11:30pm to take part in London’s first Shine event.  This night time half marathon saw us take a ‘power walk’ through the streets of London to raise money for Cancer Research UK.  

Beginning at the O2, we walked along the river Thames via Greenwich to the Cutty Sark and headed through Lewisham and Southwark Park before finally arriving at Tower Bridge and coming back again. The atmosphere was incredible and we were raring to go following our carbs beforehand...

With our personal messages pinned to our backs, we twinkled down the streets with 15,000 other walkers – and 4 hours and 55 minutes later we crossed the finish line having raised £1,162!  We are thrilled to have had an opportunity to support our client, but not least to contribute towards their life changing work. Donations are still coming in, and so if you haven’t supported us and would like to then visit our original fundraising page.  It’s not too late! 

Well done to everyone that took part in the challenge.  The question is...will we take on the full marathon next year?
