Michael Ferguson from Gallagher Plant Ltd took the courageous decision to run the 2013 London Marathon for Child Bereavement UK www.childbereavementuk.org. He completed the 26.2 mile race in just under four and a half hours.
Michael was not known for his running prowess when he embarked on this challenge, but he has shown incredible dedication and perseverance over the last five months. Michael’s efforts have been rewarded by shredding an incredible 4 stone to date. He has frequently undertaken early morning training runs before arriving at his desk at 6.30am
On his chosen charity, Michael commented, “Child Bereavement UK provides crucial support to families to help rebuild their lives when a child or baby passes away, and offer specialised care to children suffering from a loss of a parent. Having seeing the joy a child can bring to so many close friends and family of mine, I cannot imagine the devastation a loss of a child can have on a family or the loss of a parent can have on a young child. Just being able to help in some small way has spurred me on for the last few months.”

The Gallagher Group is extremely proud of Michael’s efforts.
