Sunday saw Squire Patton Boggs’ sporting endeavours continue, with a team from the London Office (comprising Emma Mason and Rosie Duckworth) running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in support of Action For Kids, the London Office’s Charity of the Year.
The 6am wake-up on a Sunday morning proved to be worth it, as the run took place during the sunniest part of the day, starting in Hyde Park and following a route around some of London’s Royal Parks and most famous landmarks. Notwithstanding a couple of injuries (and thanks to a well-timed sprint finish), Team SPB made it across the finish line inside the 2 hour mark, raising over £1,000 for Action For Kids in the process.
Lyn Prodger of Action For Kids said:
“Everyone at Action For Kids would like to say a very big thank you to Rosie and Emma for taking on the Royal Parks Half Marathon. Thanks too to all those who sponsored them and helped raise such a fantastic total – a sum like this makes a huge difference to the lives of disabled children and young people.”
