Don’t just take our word for it, hear from some of our 2021 #TeamShootingStar Marathon marvels!

“I feel very privileged to have worn the Shooting Star Children’s Hospices top today, running with such a fabulous team and for a great cause is the only thing that kept me putting one foot in front of the other!” Nathalie 

“The cheer points were incredible (especially the second one as I was having to dig pretty deep at that point to just put one foot in front of the other). What an honour to run for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices!” Paula 

“Thank you all for being part of an amazing day, for an incredible cause who work tirelessly in difficult situations. It was a real honour to be part of Shooting Star Children’s Hospices 2021 London Marathon team.” Julie
