We did it!!!
The Runaway Brides completed the River Marathon in a record 4 hours, 55 minutes in cold, rough, windy conditions. Flip through the photo gallery to see us in action. We had tremendous support all the way through the race, from well-wishing strangers to lovely friends and family cheering us on the bridges and along the riverside. Although it was an epic blister-making slog, even going against the tide for the last hour, we are still talking to each other. Just!

With your generous help, we have raised a huge amount of funds for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. We are still a little ways off our target and are hoping to get there before we hang up our wedding gowns for good. Finding a cure would mean our children with Type 1 diabetes could experience a life without constant responsibility, discomfort, and anxiety for the future. Please help us get closer to that goal.
