XG FD completes 56 mile Comrades Marathon and raises over £2,400 for charity

07 July 2012

We would like to thank all XG clients and friends who supported Justine Verwey’s gruelling 56 mile run in the Comrades Ultra Marathon, which took place in South Africa last month and successfully raised over £2,400 for Neuroblastoma Alliance UK charity. Justine ran in memory of 5 year old Niamh Curry, who sadly lost her battle with the rare childhood cancer just weeks before the race.

Out of a total of 19,500 runners, Justine finished in 9,576th place and out of 4,348 women runners, finished in 1,720th place, completing the race in 11 hours, 32 minutes and 59 seconds.

We’re all extremely proud of Justine’s amazing achievement and would again like to thank everyone who kindly sponsored her.
