CRASH Patrons and Fundraising Champions take on The Vitality Big Half and Hampton Court Half, raising over £4,500 for CRASH

Huge congratulations to all our incredible runners who took part in The Vitality Big Half and Hampton Court Half in March, raising over £4,500 for CRASH Charity.

Runners from CRASH Patron Partners: 8build, Murphy, VolkerFitzpatrick and CRASH Fundraising Champions N-able took part in The Vitality Big Half marathon in London, on Sunday 10 March.

“It was a great day and a really good event to be a part of. The crowds were fantastic all the way around the route and they give us that extra push we needed to keep going when it got tough. CRASH do some amazing work and to raise money for them whilst completing my first half marathon was fantastic. I really enjoyed it.”
