Members of the public and Calvert Trust Exmoor staff are joining forces to run the virtual London Marathon together!
On the day of the Virgin Money London Marathon, the 3rd of October 2021, some keen fundraisers and six members of the Calvert Trust Exmoor staff will be officially taking part in the virtual marathon which involves entering via an official app and completing the 26.2 miles from home. They’ll each be doing 26.2 miles around Wistlandpound Reservoir – or roughly 16 laps of the water.
The event will be an opportunity to raise money for the centre, with every pound raised going towards our 25th Birthday Appeal total.
The idea came about after Jacquie contacted us in early 2021 with a weight loss programme and lifestyle change to raise money for the charity.
Inspired by Jacquie’s efforts, staff members were keen to provide support and motivation, so they have signed up for the marathon together and Team Calvert Exmoor was born.
This is the first time any of the team have done an event like this, but we’re going to finish the distance because it’s what you can do that counts! So please support us if you can.
