Greg Thorley, who drives the S3 between Oxford and Chipping Norton for Stagecoach in Oxfordshire, will be running this year's Virgin Money London Marathon, raising more for the Get Kids Going!, - a children’s charity that supports disabled children and young people in sport, with either funding for specialist equipment, or just cash sponsorship in order to compete, travel and get specialist help.
The marathon takes place on Sunday 26th April and Greg has already reached his minimum target of £2000, doing all of his training around his shifts.
Karen Coventry, Business Development Manager for Stagecoach said, “We are really proud that one of our drivers is taking part in this year’s London Marathon and we were happy to support him in his fundraising for the charity.
We recognise that taking part in this race takes a lot of effort and commitment and many of the runners are running to raise money for charity. To show our support we are offering marathon runners free return travel to London on the Oxford Tube on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April. ”
Marathon runners need to show the driver their race number to obtain free travel.
Stagecoach are also offering up a pair of return tickets on the Oxford Tube, just tweet @Oxford_Tube with a marathon selfie on the day using the hastag #marathonselfie for your chance to win.
