Congratulations to Professor Kevin Harrington who took part in the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday and in so doing, has raised some £5,000 for Oracle. Kevin finished in under 4 hours which, by anyone’s standards, is a remarkable achievement, especially given the fact that he was plagued by a persistent chest infection for several weeks prior to the event.
Having won the place through a ballot entry, Oracle was very keen to find a competitor who had a personal connection with the charity and was delighted when Professor Harrington agreed to run. Commenting on the experience
he said: ” It was a fantastic experience. The crowds are amazing – makes you proud to live in London. Thanks so much for allowing me to represent Oracle. I was very proud to do so – especially knowing that I was the one and only amongst what seemed like hundreds of runners for other equally deserving, but probably better known, cancer charities.”
