Westrow Co-Director Set To Run The 2018 London Marathon
Marc Westerman, Director of award-winning Yorkshire-based hairdressing group Westrow, which boasts ten salons across the county and an educational academy in the heart of Leeds, is preparing to lace up his running shoes to take part in the London Marathon on Sunday 22 April.
Doing It For Charity
Following on from his charitable success at the Great North Run from 2014-2016, this year Marc will be pounding the streets of the capital to raise money for pioneering charity Diabetes UK. Diabetes affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK – more than dementia and cancer combined.
Why Diabetes UK?
Diabetes UK is a charity close to Marc’s heart, as his beloved brother Jamie sadly passed away in December 2013 as a direct result of Type 1 diabetes. Marc also lost a close friend to the disease, and two family members have recently been diagnosed with the lifelong condition.
A Word From Marc
Marc said: “I am very excited and proud to be taking part in this year’s London Marathon, one of the greatest in the world, and hope to raise as much money as possible for this amazing charity.”
So far Marc has raised more than £1,000 for Diabetes UK and we wish him the best of luck!
