Running Man Raises Money for Charity

Dale Potts
Phil Thwaite, Associate Director, working out of Faithful+Gould’s Leeds office, is celebrating completing the recent London Marathon and raising £1400 for Cancer Research UK.

Phil, a building surveyor, who when not running marathons, manages a team of surveyors to ensure delivery of services to both public and private sectors, completed the run in 4 hours, 18 minutes and 9 seconds.

Phil said: "It was an absolutely fantastic day with a great atmosphere and to run for such a worthy cause was really rewarding. Up until about 19 miles it was fairly comfortable, after then I had to grit my teeth and relied on the support from my colleagues, wife and son who were cheering me on from the sidelines. I would like to thank everybody for their sponsorship and support."

Not put off by the gruelling event, Phil is hoping to run the marathon next year and finish in a time under four hours whilst raising even more money for charity.
