Kisharon marathon runners
Braving cold and rain, seven London Marathon runners have raised £12,000 to support the work of Jewish special-needs charity Kisharon.
Ranging in age from 19 to 58-years-old, all the runners took less than 5 hours and 30 minutes to complete the 26.2 mile rice with Oliver Sanders, 38, being the fastest with a time of 3 hours 26 minutes.
Other runners inlcuded: Joseph Maxwell, 58; Aaron Morris, 33; Philip Selby, 34; Brian Resnick, 47; Meyer Phima, 56 and Eli Black, 19.
"The hard work and dedication that our marathon runners have shown is truly admirable," said Rabbi Yitzchak Freeman, interim executive director of Kisharon. "I would like to thank them all for raising crucial funds to enable us to continue caring for and educating children and adults with learning disabilities."
