"Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to run the London Marathon. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and between us all we're raised a good chunk of cash to help vulnerable kids. The support for this event from STC was brilliant, and I am so grateful to you all. The post-race reception - with cheerleaders! - was a lovely touch - and my first beer in 9 months most welcome! And we easily had the coolest-looking running t-shirts out there!"

- John 'Cookie' Cook - Save the Children London Marathon runner 2019
