Ramy Soliman
Thank you!! What a fantastic day. I was so impressed with the NDCS team. Lots of the runners gave me encouragement on the way round. Feeling a bit tired today but happy to have completed it and raise some money for a great cause.

Chris Byrne
Awesome day, awesome support. As a parent of a deaf child I can't think of any better reason to run 26.2 miles!

Angela Smith
Well what an epic journey!
I simply cannot thank everyone of my supporters enough for all the kind messages, sponsorship and good will I have had. I feel like I'm in a dream "I ran 26.2 miles in the Virgin London Marathon" I have been through a mix of joy, excitement, pain, relief, aches, tiredness and pride and you know what! I would do it all son and many more babies & children will benefit from support, encouragement and love through NDCS & families. Thank you everyone whom donated you have taken me through an experience I will never forget!  For every deaf child.

It was truly a great day yesterday and one memory I will live forever with. It was amazing to see you all at the NDCS cheer point and to 'high five' you all. I finished in 5:38:59 and was proud of my own achievement but even more so to know that my achievement had helped raise as much money as I can for NDCS.

Thank you & the team for all your incredible support, seeing you all at Big Ben shouting & screaming certainly raised the spirits to get over the line.
