It's been a marathon year for krbs, but IT team member Lee Thompson isn't finished yet.

Lee will be running in the 2011 London Marathon to support MACS, the Micro and Anophthalmic Children’s Society.

Lee says:

I love a challenge and there is none greater than the London marathon.

In 2008 I decided to run the marathon, mainly for personal reasons as I have always faced weight issues and from a young age suffered with asthma. I decided to do some research on charities that I would like support and decided to choose MACS. This charity touched my heart when I read into the work they do supporting children that are born without sight or develop loss of sight at an early stage in their life. 

This year I have decided to run the marathon again and raise money for the same charity, I feel this charity have kept me informed of the good work they are doing. I would like to help raise as much money as I possibly can to help out this outstanding charity. I plan to continue to support this charity.

krbs are pleased to support Lee and MACS and we'll be cheering him on from the safety of our living rooms. We will also be matching the donations pledged by krbs staff. If you would like to join us, please visit Lee on Virgin Money Giving today and donate whatever you can.

More about MACS

MACS, the Micro and Anophthalmic Children’s Society, was formed in 1993 by a group of parents, all of whom had children with microphthalmia (small formed eyes), anophthalmia (no eyes) and coloboma (sight problems).  The support from the society is outstanding: each year MACS have a family weekend.  This gives families both old and new a chance to meet one another, make new friends and learn about how to cope and understand the different issues that arise.
