We are the charity for older people to be there when they need us most.


My name is Chris, Richards partner. Richard tragically died on the 25th May 2022. He was the most beautiful, kind, and thoughtful person I have ever known, a true soulmate, and loving partner. 

Though somewhat apprehensive about running a marathon distance - never done it before! I felt it was important to run in Richards honour and to carry on his important fundraising for Age UK, a charity that meant so much to him given his work as both an outstanding Geriatrician and Research Scientist. 

Out of respect for Richard I have decided to keep his words below, to reflect the original cause:

I'm thrilled (if a bit terrified!) to be running this year's London Marathon and for the chance to fundraise for Age UK. As a geriatrician (a doctor specialising in the care of older people), I know how important their work is.

Fortunately I'm part of a great team along with four other geriatricians and we'll be supporting each other as we train over Summer.
