Ivan's shirt finally arrived this week, so we set up a photo of him in training for the London marathon!
I sponsored him and sent this release out!
Good luck Ivan!
E J Darlington Renault sales executive Ivan Bonney is currently in training for his first London marathon in April which he is running in aid of Whizz-Kidz, a disabled children’s charity.
Ivan, aged 35, from Bishops Stortford, manages to fit in 50 miles a week, six nights a week as part of his training in between his work at E J Darlington and his volunteer role as a Community First Responder for the East of Ambulance service.
Although this is his first marathon, Ivan is a keen runner and has raised funds for St Clare’s Hospice and has recently competed in several 10-mile competitions.
“It’s a big task but I’m really looking forward to the London Marathon,” he said. “I particularly wanted to help a children’s charity as I feel that the money raised is hugely beneficial to disabled children and their families.”
Ivan’s wife Holly along with two coach loads of friends will be driving to London to support him, and his aim is to raise £1,600 or more for the charity which provides disabled children with the essential wheelchairs and other mobility equipment they need to lead fun and active childhoods.
