Bob Jenkins has been a long-time supporter of RAFT, running a total of 19 marathons for our medical research! And next year he will be running the Virgin London Marathon for RAFT. What is even more remarkable is that he turns 80 today!
Bob was introduced to RAFT in 1993 for the only reason that RAFT had marathon spaces available, but he soon became passionate about what we do. His son Robert is also running for RAFT. It seems there is nothing that can stop this father and son team. We are so grateful for all their hard work and support that has resulted in over £45,000 being raised over the years from their friends and neighbours.
Bob and his wife Chris visited RAFT yesterday to meet our science team and find out more about how Bob’s hard earned donations are spent.
