Team story

[p][b]Websters Lockdown Marathon Relay starts 26 April 2020 at 9.30am……10 Marathons, 2 Teams (262 miles)[/b][/p][p]Thousands of fundraising events across the UK have been cancelled due to Covid-19 with a devastating impact on charity income that means many charities are facing closure. There are estimates that the UK charity sector will lose £4 billion in income as a result of the pandemic. The 2019 Virgin London Marathon raised £66.4 million for so many deserving charities, making it the world’s biggest one day annual charity event. However this year, due to the pandemic, it has been postponed until October 2020 and the organisers are promoting the 2.6 Challenge to help save UK charities.[/p][p][b]What are Websters doing?[/b][/p][p]We are supporting the “2.6 Challenge” in our own way with a Websters Lockdown Marathon Relay starting at 9.30am on Sunday 26 April, when the London Marathon was planned to start. We are challenging “Team Birmingham” and “Team London” to complete the combined distance of 262 miles (10 marathons) in 1 hour relay legs. No rivalry obviously, but which team would you like to see win????? [/p][p]Each relay leg will start from the team member’s home and last 1 hour before (virtually) tagging the next team member. The overall distance covered by each team will be logged and each team finishes when the challenge distance of 131 miles per team is reached.[/p][p]*The Smallprint: The challenge stays within the #stayathome guidelines with 1 exercise per person per day and will not run through the night with the relay stopping at 8.30pm in the evening and continuing the next day. Social distancing will be practised by all team members.[/p][p][b]Who are we supporting?[/b][/p][p]We will all be spurred on by our five great causes which are linked below.[/p][p][b]Donations[/b][/p][p]We would be so grateful for any sponsorship or any amount that you are able to donate to these wonderful causes which are so desperate for support in these troubling times.[/p][p]With any sponsorship pledge, please feel free to show your allegiance to Team Birmingham or Team London!![/p][p][b]Thank you for any support that you are able to give Websters to help to save our UK Charities. [/b][/p][p]Stay Safe[/p][p][b]The Websters Team[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Websters send our heartfelt gratitude for the bravery, strength and courage of everyone at the NHS and all frontline and key workers helping to keep us safe. We salute you all.[/b][/p]
