Henry versus the London Marathon

Monday, 16 April 2012

Zeta Director Henry Waterfall-Allen is running the Virgin London Marathon this month for LOROS, a charity based in his home county of Leicestershire.

Henry must raise £2000 in sponsorship money to take part. He’s already found over £1000 worth of sponsorship, but time is running out fast and he needs your help to meet his target!

LOROS (the Leicestershire and Rutland Organisation for the Relief of Suffering) is a local charity providing care and support within Leicestershire and Rutland.

LOROS offers a free service to people in the local area regardless of their ethnicity or faith. The Charity relies upon donations to provide its services.

To sponsor Henry, please visit his fundraising page, it only takes a second and you can choose to donate anonymously and leave as much or as little as you like.

Henry has somehow managed to run between 25-35 miles per week since November despite having a full-on schedule here at Zeta, and we’re all extremely proud of his efforts. Henry is a bit like a dog with a bone when he gets an idea in his head – he refuses to let go until he’s made it happen, so this determined streak has probably helped a lot!

However, the main reason for running the marathon is to honour the memory of his auntie, who spent her last few weeks on Earth at LOROS. Henry speaks highly of the care that they provided to both his auntie and members of the family: running the London Marathon is a way for him to show his appreciation of their work and to help give something back.
