Jerry Knight: My London Marathon experience

Running the London Marathon was one of the best experiences of my life.

Fantastically organised, phenomenal support from the crowds for all 26.2 miles and the comradery of thousands of people running together for charities makes for such a special day. It was an honour to have the opportunity from Sue Ryder to run for such an important cause to me and my family. A day I’ll never forget.

My grandfather received end-of-life care from Sue Ryder at their Duchess of Kent hospice in 2022, so the cause is close to my heart. The Sue Ryder team were excellent in supporting my grandad and our family while he was receiving end-of-life care last year. The charity does an incredible job helping people and their loved ones in times that matter the most and I am thankful to have the opportunity to give back in any small part that I can. 

I managed to raise a total of £9,227 and finished the marathon in 3 hours & 36 minutes!
