£15,128.40 raised for BMSTC at the Reading Half Marathon 2010!

Today is precisely two months on from the Reading Half Marathon and I have just received the cheque for £3,900 from the organisers of the event. This is their donation for your marshalling services and the army of 40 volunteers that we provided on the day and means that the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre has made a record amount of money from this event.
Altogether we had 37 runners and they have raised £11,228.40 in sponsorship so far; with this cheque you have helped to raise an amazing £15,128.40 for the Centre, and I am absolutely delighted. I attended a debriefing meeting with the organisers last month and they have confirmed that we are now one of the OFFICIAL CHARITIES of Reading Half Marathon, due to meeting their request to provide so many marshals.
Thank you so much for your help, it is truly appreciated by all our members who rely on the MS Therapy Centre for support.
