We are excited to announce that Two-time Olympian Kristian Thomas will be running the TCS London Marathon on 2nd October 2022 for us and fundraising for our lifechanging programmes.
As our Foundation Ambassador, Kristian is excited by the challenge, because the money raised will help transform the lives of those most in need through the sport he loves.
Speaking about why he wanted to take part, Kristian said: “The main reason is my previous work with the Foundation – especially the Love to Move programme. I’ve always worked closely with the Foundation so first and foremost it’s to fundraise for them and promote the good work they do.
“For me personally though, I’m always up for a new challenge or a new target. I’m not an endurance athlete but I love a goal to work towards.”
With less than three months to go until the marathon takes place on the 2nd October, we’ll be providing updates on Kristian’s training, to see how his preparations are going ahead of the big day.
Patrick Bonner, Head of the British Gymnastics Foundation, said: “We’re delighted to have Kristian on board to help raise funds for the charity, so that we can transform more people’s lives through the sport.
“Kristian has been a strong advocate of the charity and became one of our Love to Move ambassadors when the programme was launched. We’re so pleased he’s taking on the challenge, and we’ll be right behind him all the way!”
We’d like to take this opportunity to wish Kristian the best of luck in his preparations.
