I am running the London Marathon in my uniform for Barts Charity because I want to raise funds for my unit's charity fund

Barts Charity London Marathon Team 2019

Be a part of the Barts Charity Team at the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon and support the staff, patients and researchers who need it most!

Charity Registration No. 212563


I'm fundraising for Barts Charity to support the work of the wonderful staff on the Acute Admissions Unit at the Royal London Hospital where I have worked for nearly 7 years.

I will be attempting to break the record for the fastest marathon in a nurse's uniform by a female runner! Unfortunately Guinness world records has not accepted my application as they said my uniform does not comply with their 'criteria' of what a nurse wears.  However  I will still be aiming to beat the current official time of 3 hours 8 minutes and 54 seconds.

We have previously used the charity fund to buy equipment for the ward such as dementia friendly clocks and signage, a bladder scanner and some furnishings for the staff room and day rooms.  

Thank you for supporting the cause!
