Liam hits halfway mark for London Marathon fundraising target

CDW Systems’ Liam Smith has currently raised £1,250 for his London Marathon challenge, meaning he’s halfway towards his £2,500 target – and with two months still to go before race day, he’s hoping to hit it.

The order processor is running the London Marathon on Sunday, April 23 in aid of Leukaemia Care to raise awareness of the work it does across the country.

“Raising £1,250 so far is incredible and I can’t thank everyone who has already donated enough,” said a delighted Liam. “Any donation big or small with make a massive difference to this amazing charity and if you are able to support and help me get to £2,500 target it would mean the world to me and Leukaemia Care.”

Liam’s training is designed to build fitness gradually whilst not pushing his body too far too soon but, while the beginning of the year started positively, it hasn’t been without its challenges.

“Every month presents new challenges and the cold weather, an old injury and running shoes slightly past their best meant I was putting too much strain on my legs causing shin splints,” Liam explained.

“But a few days’ rest, new trainers and some warm-up exercises did the trick and I managed to put in a couple of smaller runs followed by a longer eight-mile run. Training is now back on track, and I am looking forward to increasing the miles in the coming months.”

Everyone at CDW Systems is behind him, and Group Chairman Jeremy Phillips commented: “Liam is certainly putting the miles in and getting halfway to his fundraising target will give him an extra boost for the next two months of training.”
