Marathon Fund Raising
To date, Marathon sponsorship of Oliver Bowers in London and Mumbai, India has raised more than £3,022 including Gift Aid for Mindfulness, The Mental Health Foundation, Oxfam and Heads Together!
Mindfulness for Mental Health
Over the past three years, we have raised £2,167 including Gift Aid for The Mental Health Foundation. This includes £576 in 2018 in support of The Foundation's work on "How to look after your mental health using mindfulness".
To celebrate the Kingston and New Malden Mindfulness Practice Group's sixth anniversary we are again sponsoring Oliver Bowers in the 2018 London Marathon, the largest annual one-day fundraising event in the world!
Oliver has a Championship Entry (that he won in 2016) and with running number 1449 will start alongside the world’s greatest distance runner Sir Mo Farah! The generosity of your past support means that MHF has been able to introduce a number of initiatives and programmes that help some of the most vulnerable people in our society as well as the wider public. Please donate and ask your friends to donate to this Virgin Donation Page!
In 2016 we raised over £1,000 for The Mental Health Foundation and Oliver completed his first London Marathon in 2 hours 40 minutes 16 seconds. This sub 2:45 performance qualifies Oliver for a championship entry place in the 2017 and 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon.
