Minding the gap for @CRY_UK and @alzheimerssoc
It’s a gloriously sunny Spring morning so what better way to spend the day than deep underground raising money and awareness for Tom and Claire’s Fund, CRY and The Alzheimer’s Society.
Sandra Courtney and Kelvin Walker, organisers of the Ealing Half Marathon, are part of a group of about 20 fund-raisers who will be spending nearly 20 hours on the London Underground in an attempt to visit all 270 stations in a single day.
The Walk the Tube challenge started at 4:45am and aims to finish at around 11:00pm. It is being led by Geoff Marshall, who previously held the Guinness World Record for navigating all the stations in the fastest time.
Sandra and Kelvin say that as they usually organise races in which others raise funds, this gives them the chance to do so themselves for a change.
They are raising money for The Alzheimer’s Society, Ealing Half Marathon’s headline charity for 2015, and CRY in memory of Tom and Andrew Carter. Andrew took part in the 2014 Ealing Half Marathon but the 33-year-old runner from Ealing collapsed near the end of the race following a cardiac arrest and died on October 1 last year.
