Bal's Marathon Fundraiser
Congratulations to Bal Hegedus-Pickvance who ran the London Marathon in aid of the Meningitis Research Fund. Bal’s time was 4 hours 3 minutes, which he’s keen to beat next time – possibly in Brighton next year. (Credit to Bal for even considering a next time!) If you have a child, nephew, niece and/or grandchild who is a toddler, then you will have recently benefited from a new vaccine developed and introduced via the NHS by the Meningitis Research Fund (MRF).
It’s estimated that 1,000 people die from meningitis and septicaemia every day. Many more are left with life-long disabilities. MRF have invested over £17m in vital research and health interventions which aid diagnosis. MRF spend around £1m a year in the UK supporting those affected and providing free information to the public and healthcare professionals.
Bal sends a huge ‘thank you’ to Project One and the team for their generosity in helping him to raise a massive £2,224, smashing his target of £2,000.
