Matt was very proud to be part of the Liam Smiles London Marathon Team 2016, raising money for Meningitis Now. The team was made up of 14 fantastic people from Birmingham, including Gary Rowett the Birmingham City Football Club Manager, all training hard in the lead up to the marathon and generating lots of sponsorship to raise an incredible amount of money.
The team was led by Becky Doyle, Liam’s mother, who completed the marathon (her first one) in a brilliant time. Matt also completed the marathon in a great time and was very proud to raise so much money for a cause very close to home. In total the team raised a huge £65,127.11, not including gift aid, which will make a real difference to so many families in Birmingham suffering from the effects of this awful disease.
The team had an incredible bond and Matt made friends for life through this event, one that he will never forget!
