St George's Hospital Charity has thanked all of its fundraisers as its challenge events season has come to an end.

With the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday ending the season, well over 100 people have competed in events that have raised money for the charity this year.

A spokesperson for the charity said: "It's time to say a huge thank you to each and every one of our fundraisers who have worked so hard to raise money for St George’s Hospital Charity this year."

It all began in August with the London Landmarks Half Marathon - the first event since the start of the pandemic. Here the charity's fundraising officer, Chloe Roberts, took part with her friends Jamie and Jake.

They were also joined by nine other runners for #TeamGeorges as they ran past landmarks that included the London Eye and St Paul's Cathedral.

After that was the skydive from 13,000 feet. Two fundraisers took part here, including Amanda Arnold who turned 70 the day after the event.

In September there was the London Marathon Walk which had 11 from Team George, including a team from St George's medical department.

Then there was the London to Brighton Cycle which had marked a spectacular occasion for the charity. A total of 60 #TeamGeorges cyclists took part in the 55-mile cycle - the greatest number the charity has had.

This year’s London Marathon saw eight runners raise money for the charity, incredibly raising over £35,000.

And the 2021 challenge events came to an end last Sunday with the Royal Parks Half Marathon with over 18 people taking part for #TeamGeorges.

If you would like to join #TeamGeorges for next year’s challenge events applications are now OPEN for 2022.
