Our Marathon Marvels!

CAFOD Brentwood were delighted to have five people supporting CAFOD in the London Marathon.

Adele Moggan (53), from Basildon, ran a personal best of 4 hours 53 minutes. She claimed that this was just “training” for the notorious Marathon des Sabres, a gruelling 156-mile run over 6 days in the Sahara Desert – which she plans to run in 2015!

Joe Finch, from Brentwood, finished in a fantastic time of 3 hours 6 minutes (in only his second marathon). Joe was almost forced to stop by crippling knee pain with 2 miles to go. He said it was a banner on the course that persuaded him to carry on: “Run fast. Walk if you have to. But finish for Boston”. James, father of Joe, also took part in the Marathon.

Peter French (47) from Woodford Green, also set a person best in his ninth marathon and beat his personal fundraising total for CAFOD, raising a fintal total of £4500. He said afterwards: “What I like about CAFOD is that they help poverty-stricken communities by getting them back on their own feet, not just throwing money at them. Ultimately everyone is helped to provide for themselves.”

Peter Tree

Peter Tree (58), a veteran of eight marathons from Thurrock, ran the London Marathon to raise money in memory of ex-CAFOD staffer, Antony Mahony, his best friend since childhood who died in 2011 from cancer.

Well done to everyone who took part in the London Marathon.
