London Marathon runners out in force to raise money for disabled people

A 60-strong team of dedicated runners is limbering up to run the London Marathon on Sunday for our charity.
They will join elite athletes and 35,000 other runners to complete the 26.2-mile course from Greenwich to St James's Park, passing London icons including the Tower of London and Big Ben.
Our volunteer Holly Finnigan is running to raise funds for the care home she helps, while Tony Adamson is taking on the challenge for the first time to raise money for us.
Together with the rest of team Leonard Cheshire, our amazing runners are set to raise more than £100,000. This will enable thousands of people with physical and learning disabilities to do things others take for granted and help them achieve what is important to them.
Places for our 2015 marathon team have just been released. Do something amazing today and get your place on the starting line.
