Verona Marathon 15/11/2015

Hello everyone!

I am Paolo. I recently started volunteering for CREST and this is my first blog post on our site – hopefully the first of a long series 🙂

I just wanted to thank you all for your donations over the past few weeks. Together we have raised over £600 for thinkarts!, which in a short period of time and without much promotion it really is a terrific result.

I bet you want to see proofs of the run now? Here come some pictures.

 

8.30am, just before the race. Not the prettiest day but the Arena is looking good as always.

1pm. After 3h 30m 41s the Arena is till there. One more family picture and then it's time to head home for a big Sunday lunch :)

In my opinion all finishers, no matter the time, are winners - but these are three deserve some real applause!

Last but not least. Technically there’re 7 more days to donate, so if you have any spare change thinkarts! will appreciate your help: https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/paololenotti

 

Ciao ciao
