Reading Half Marathon 2015


In 2015, we had 53 runners take to the streets of Reading to raise valuable funds and raise awareness of the plight of so many young children who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour. As a direct result of our runners' efforts last year, we hit our target, and finalised the sponsorship of a 4 year PhD Research position at the University of Newcastle.

Thank you so very much to the team of about 50 current pupils and teachers at Abingdon School, Old Abingdonians and other supporters of Blue Skye Thinking who ran the gruelling Reading Half Marathon at the weekend and raised over £17,000! We cannot thank you enough for coming together like this and help raise the profile of such a special new charity.

A happy band of Old Abingdonians, Abingdonians and Current Staff before setting off!
