Team Lepra complete #The40thRace Virtual London Marathon

8 October 2020

On Sunday October 4th, 6 fantastic runners and walkers formed #TeamLepra and took on the Virtual London Marathon!

The weather was truly miserable, but that didn’t deter the drive of each of our team to reach the finish line of 26.2 miles, with an ultimate goal of supporting people with leprosy and lymphatic filariasis!

Team Lepra was made up of Tom, Jon, Miranda, Milena, Katja and Lucy. We thank each of you for being a part of this somewhat turbulent journey to the London Marathon finish line.

‘I was better prepared mentally than physically, thanks to the cause. It was the faces of the people affected by leprosy and Lepra's frontline workers that I have been in touch with over the past year as a Programme Manager at Lepra.  It was the faces of those in the need and their transformation that didn't give me any choice but start the Marathon, and finish it.’ - Milena Simic, Programme Manager, Lepra
