the London Marathon
London Marathon is one of the greatest sporting and charitable city-centre
marathons in the world.
WomenAid is delighted that it is once again fielding a team of committed
runners – the WOMENAID STARS. By participating in this world-class marathon
the runners have accepted a very real physical and psychological challenge!
However the self-discipline to maintain a rigorous training schedule
through several winter months is not the only evidence of a great commitment.
WOMENAID STARS have also dedicated themselves to help others in need by
collecting donations from friends, family, colleagues, and other sponsors in
support of WomenAid International programmes.
WomenAid is deeply appreciates the support of our London Marathon runners, the WomenAid Stars.
We salute each of our runners and wish them all a great personal victory.
