Sarah's epic challenge for SSAFA

Sarah Boyland

Sarah decided to take on the Virgin London Marathon to raise money for SSAFA and raised more than £3,000.


The experience is so amazing. I can’t think of anything more fulfilling.

“I’d been to the London Marathon in 2015 and thought, ‘I need to do that’! I set up a Virgin Money Giving page after I got my place. I then did lots of social media posts, often after my long runs. I timed them around when people were getting paid. And talked about why SSAFA is so important to me, and – if someone gave me £5 – what that would mean to the charity.

People in our Armed Forces give their lives to serve their country. For me, that’s why charities like SSAFA are so worthwhile. In a blink of an eye, I’d do it again!”
