For the first time this year we applied for and received a ballot entry for the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon. We are delighted that Ben Blackwell has taken up our ballot place and wish him luck in reaching his target of £2,500. Ben is the fiancee of Emily Morris, an AMR sufferer who’s story you can read here. Ben will be joined in the marathon by his brother Marc who obtained a ballot place as a runner. It’s fantastic that Ben and Marc will be running for us. Their motivation is that they can see what impact AMR has had on Emily and they want to help us raise money to fund our mission of developing new antibiotic thereapies, educating the public and professionals about AMR and providing patient support. You can help Ben and Marc reach their target by sponsoring them on their Virgin Money Giving page. Please help Ben and Marc to help us.
