Running for gold in aid of Jewish Blind & Disabled at the 2021 London Marathon

05 October 2021

Dan Lee, long term supporter of Jewish Blind & Disabled took on the ultimate challenge of running the London Marathon on Sunday 3rd October, raising close to £4,000, which will be match funded by the Cecil Rosen Foundation, in aid of Jewish Blind & Disabled. He completed the 26.2-mile course in just over 4 hours 30 minutes.

Dan said: “Sunday 3rd October will forever be seared into my memory – my first (and only!) London Marathon. Everything they say about the event is true; the crowds, the atmosphere, the pain (particularly true for me), the elation and the feeling of satisfaction that you have completed something truly epic. To be able to support Jewish Blind & Disabled and raise so much money has been a privilege. A fantastic charity and I am delighted to continue the fundraising that my children have done in previous years for such a great cause.”

Oliver Nathan also ran the virtual marathon on Sunday raising over £2000, which will also be match funded, for Jewish Blind & Disabled.

Jewish Blind & Disabled’s Chief Executive, Lisa Wimborne, said: “We’re hugely grateful to Dan and Oliver for running marathon in aid of Jewish Blind & Disabled and to the Cecil Rosen Foundation for match funding their donations. Their commitment and dedication to training has been admirable and the £12,000 raised will go a long way to helping us to support people with physical disabilities and/ or impaired vision.”
