Doran raised over £4,000 ($5,792/€5,039) for the Child Bereavement UK charity in the marathon on 24 April.
In March, The Recycler reported on Doran’s decision to run the London Marathon, with ITP’s Commercial Director stating that the charity offers “support for bereaved children or parents”. His best friend and his wife – Paul and Louise Woodbridge – lost their two-year-old twins in an accident at home, and “turned to the charity for support – they spent years with them, counselling them through grief and trauma, and offers a profoundly important service”.
He stated: “I finished in four hours 61 minutes and 57 seconds – a fantastic day, awe-inspiring! I thoroughly enjoyed it but have officially retired from marathon running – still nursing a couple of injuries but worth it. The fundraising pages are still open for another month for those who wish to sponsor me. So far I’ve raised well over £4,000 for Child Bereavement UK. Thanks to all those who supported and sponsored my cause.”
Jason had set a fundraising target of £3,000 ($4,324/€3,822), and at the time of publication, he had raised £4,396.63 ($6,366/€5,538), over £1,300 ($1,882/€1,637) more than his initial target. You can still donate to Jason’s campaign by clicking here.
