CEO Richard doubles his NSPCC target in London Marathon
Conroy Brook CEO Richard Conroy has raised more than £4,000 for the NSPCC after successfully completing the 2017 Virgin London Marathon.
Conroy Brook CEO Richard Conroy recently completed the Chesterfield Marathon and in doing so raised £400 for the charity Habitat for Humanity.
Although Richard has undertaken a number of sporting challenges for charity previously, including the Yorkshire Pedalthon and the Sheffield half-marathon, this was his first full marathon and so he was delighted to finish in a very respectable 136th place of 332 runners.
He said: “Thank you all for your very generous sponsorship for Habitat for Humanity. I have been pledged over £400 which is more than enough to build a basic shelter for a homeless family, so many thanks!”
Habitat for Humanity is an international development charity that aims to break the cycle of poverty by eliminating poverty housing and homelessness.
