Paris Marathon

Paris Marathon

Amanda Taylor and her husband Dave successfully completed the Paris marathon back in April 2016 in aid of Cancer Research, also supporting our Armitage Thanks fundraising activities.

Taking on the challenge in aid of Dave’s father who sadly passed away from cancer in July last year, the couple initially were planning on running the Rome marathon, Amanda’s sister had ran the Paris marathon last year and recommended this to the fundraising team.

Both experienced runners, Dave finished in 4hrs 22 mins and Amanda 5 hrs 59 mins.

Amanda currently works as a Tank Cell specialist, based at the Armitage site. She comments “We had a fantastic experience, a warm day meant it was harder than we expected. We are both thrilled with the amount we have raised for Cancer Research and appreciate the support given by our friends, family and colleagues”.

Armitage Thanks is run by the Hey-Smile Foundation, operating under the registered charity number 1125856 on behalf of Armitage Shanks.For further information please contact: armitagethanks@idealstandard.com
