Charlotte and Elizabeth’s marathon effort for @CRY_UK

Charlotte and Elizabeth: conquerors of the Edinburgh Marathon.

Charlotte Johnson and her mum, Elizabeth Adams, successfully completed the Edinburgh marathon on Sunday, May 31, and broke their fund-raising target while doing so.

It was a second marathon for Charlotte and a first for Elizabeth and the pair, who train and race together, have raised more than £800 for CRY and Tom and Claire’s Fund.

Charlotte, who finished in four hours and two minutes, said of the generosity of those who donated: “It kept us plodding along, especially against the 40mph gusts of wind in the final miles.”

She added: “I am so proud of my Mum and her super result, four hours, five minutes. I feel so lucky to have had such an optimistic, fun and strong running partner.”

Tom was in the year below Charlotte at high school while Claire was a friend of Elizabeth’s.

We very much appreciate the efforts of Charlotte and Elizabeth, which has done so much to help keep awareness of CRY in the public eye. Thank you.
