Run for us

"This was our third time running the Royal Parks Half Marathon. We were overwhelmed with the incredible support we received from GOSH from beginning to end, particularly at the cheer points and in the finishers' marquee, where we were gratefully greeted by GOSH staff congratulating our efforts. ​

It was a real privilege running for this incredible charity and hope we can do it again next year." - Jo and James, GOSH runners.
