Charity’s marathon answer to broken resolutions

15 January 2004
Two weeks into 2004 and thousands of people across the UK already regret breaking their New Year’s Resolutions. But national charity, Action Medical Research is offering people who have broken their ‘get fit’ resolution a chance to redeem themselves. The Charity has 20 places in its team for the Flora London Marathon in April and is urging people suffering the pangs of guilt to sign up. Those taking part will be joining a team boasting Paddington Bear as its most famous runner. Action Medical Research National Events Manager, Amanda Borg, says, “We’re offering ‘two for the price of one’ on resolutions - Not only will runners be getting fit they’ll also be raising money for a great cause! It’s not too late to sign up and get training.” Amanda Borg continues, “Runners get great support with training and fundraising tips and there’s a post race reception with a massage for those weary legs.” With the broadest research remit of any medical charity in the country, the Charity has helped everyone in the UK through its breakthroughs. Action Medical Research developed the polio vaccine in the UK, pioneered the use of ultrasound scanning and hip replacement surgery, and discovered the importance of folic acid in the prevention of spina bifida. The Charity is working hard to create a healthier future for everyone by raising £5 million this year to help fund vital medical breakthroughs. To sign up and run for the Action Medical Research team on April 18th phone 0870 333 1662 or go to www.action.org.uk /ENDS
