Following the great success of the 2017 London Marathon, FHT therapists offered their services to help tired runners on behalf of two leading charities, the MND Association and the Stroke Association.
The 2017 London Marathon, which took place on 23 April, saw a record number of competitors take to the streets of London to raise money for a variety of charities.
Participants were greeted at the finish line by FHT therapists offering free treatments to participants, to make sure the runners left the post-race reception venue in the best possible condition, after clocking up a massive 26.2 miles.
FHT members volunteered their time and skills on behalf of both the MND Association and the Stroke Association.Their generous donation helping to ease runners aches and pains in a professional and skillful manner, while upholding the standards of the FHT.
With over 160 runners raising money for the charity, it was the biggest year yet for the MND Association.
‘We were impressed by the hard work, care and professionalism of both the FHT therapists, Will McAllister and Neil Ferebee. They really did help to make a difference to each of our runners’ experience, for which we are so grateful. Roll on London Marathon 2018 – we would love to work with your therapists again.’
Also working at the event were FHT members Peggy, Martina, Aria and Wendy; representing the FHT and providing support for the Stroke Association.
“We are hugely grateful to the FHT therapists who gave up their time and provided their expertise on Sunday to help us look after our team of 240 incredible and inspiring #TeamStroke Marathon runners. So far the runners have raised over £300k. They were so very grateful for the post-run treatments and we offer sincere thanks to the FHT for once again supporting the Stroke Association.”
The FHT are proud to represent therapists who are committed to the industry and who are willing to volunteer their own time to give back to the community.
