Imps taking on London Marathon

Three members of City’s workforce are taking on one of the greatest challenges in endurance running this weekend to raise money for charity.

Director of operations Damian Froggatt, head of performance Ross Burberry and
head of healthier communities Alice Carter will all take part in the iconic TCS London Marathon - a 26.2 mile event through the nation’s capital.

Alice is running to raise money for the club’s Foundation as part of a double-header which will also see her take part in the New York Marathon in November, while Damian is taking part on behalf of the Stroke Association.

Alice said: “It is an exciting prospect to be able to take part in two of the largest road races in the world and it is for this reason I wanted to use my entries to support and raise awareness of the work of Lincoln City Foundation.

“Having had the pleasure of working for the charity for the past five years I see the difference we are making to peoples’ lives and the impact we are having on communities daily. And I hope I can help share this message widely and generate support through my marathon participation.”

Damian added: “The Stroke Association are the UK's leading stroke charity, delivering amazing, life-changing support to more than 70,000 stroke survivors and their families each year.

“Without people raising funds for the Stroke Association they could not provide the support and research that they do.”

Ross is taking part as part of his annual Prostate United fundraising efforts, which will see him and others take part in a running or cycling challenge every day in November.

Collectively the Prostate United participants have raised close to £250,000, and will be confirming details of how to take part in this year's event soon.
