Dynamic Duo raise over £5,000 for Rose Road
Two lawyers from Southampton legal firm, Eric Robinson Solicitors, are celebrating after having run the London Marathon in aid of The Rose Road Association.
After months of training and preparation, David Lee, 32, and Laura Pittam, 29, ran the 26.2 mile course through the streets of London in order to raise funds for the Southampton charity which provides services for children and young adults with profound and multiple disabilities.
‘The training was hard work and I was in some pain by the end of the race, but the overwhelming sense of achievement and the amount of money we raised for such an important cause made it all worth while,’ said David, who completed the raise in 5 hours 18 minutes.
The two colleagues, who convinced each other to take part in the race while at work, far exceeded their initial target and have raised over £5,300.
Laura, who completed the course in 4 hours and 46 minutes, also filled a personal ambition ‘I wanted to run a marathon before I turned 30, so I am so pleased when I tell myself I actually did it!’
