Virgin London Marathon
Returning to London for the second year running, 7 Oliver's Wish runners are looking to raise more than ever at this year's iconic marathon event.
THE DOWLING BROTHERS
Rachel is joining the crazy ranks of those she's hugely admired: long-distance runners. She'll be running the London Marathon in support of everyone who's building the legacy of her nephew Oliver, by raising funds for causes who support families in their times of darkness.
Last year Jon ran my first half marathon for one of the charities that benefit from the foundation's hard work, The Lullaby Trust. Now he's once again lacing up his running shoes, this time taking on the huge challenge of running a marathon!

Anna's Brighton Marathon
Since Anna began distance running, it's given her strength during the toughest of times. "It has now become my special time with Oliver," she says "and running the Brighton Marathon in his memory means so much to me. It will be a huge challenge."
