Celebs run the London Marathon
01 April 2009
NSPCC Ambassador Peter Andre, TV Historian Nick Barratt, and BBC Apprentice winner Michelle Dewberry were just some of the runners taking part in the London Marathon to help raise vital funds for the Charity on Sunday 26 April 2009.
Paul Worsley, Managing Director of James Grant Management who look after talent including Ant and Dec, Fearne Cotton and Philip Schofield persuaded his brother Nick who also works at James Grant and his assistant, Lara Parkin, who is a keen runner to join him. (Unfortunately, due to illness Paul was unable to take part and will instead run next year in 2010).
Peter Andre was running for the NSPCC with his ex-wife Katie Price who was raising money for her charity, Vision. They both crossed the finish line together after some stoppages along the way due to Katie becoming injured.
Michelle Dewberry ran her second marathon for NSPCC raising approximately £1,500 for our work with vulnerable children across the UK. She completed the course in a fantastic 4 hours and 26 minutes.
All the runners trained incredibly hard in preparation for 26 April. If you would still like to support their efforts, and help them raise as much money as possible, please visit their Just Giving pages and sponsor them whatever you can afford. Thank you!!
