Help the NHS Heroes
We did it
On 7th June 2020 we successfully raised £1,062 with 45 supporters in 29 days

A small team of us would like to give back to the NHS and say THANK YOU for all of the hard work that they have done for our country.

Update: 31/05/2020 

We’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us and those who are still to do so. Our team completed all legs of the charity relay run; exceeding the total amount of miles that we initially pledged to do.

Our results of our each individual runs are as follows. 

Paolo Agnilleri - 15km - time 1hr 36 minutes 

Natalie Agnilleri - 13km - time 1hr 19 minutes 

Helen - 6.2 miles - time 58 minutes 01 seconds

Adam Agnilleri - 7 miles 


Dearest Friends and Family,

As you know many fundraising events in the UK have been postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.  In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events have come together to create the 2.6 Challenge to raise vital funds to help support the UK’s charities in these difficult times. 

Our response to this is to create a virtual marathon relay team of varying abilities and interests to walk/run a marathon (26.2 miles on 42.2 kilometres) on 31st May 2020.

Our Virtual Marathon Relay Team:

1st Leg – Adam Agnilleri – pledges to walk 6 km

2nd Leg – Helen Linsell – pledges to run 10 km

3rd Leg – Natalie Whoo – pledges to run 13.1 km

4th Leg – Paolo Agnilleri – pledges to run 13.1 km

We are walking/running for a crowdfunding initiative called Masks for NHS Heroes and is backed by actor James McAvoy that is raising fund to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect healthcare workers against Covid-19 while caring for sick patients.

It was launched by a group of UK-based doctors and GPs who intend to resolve the lack of hospital supplies due to increasing numbers of patients being admitted with coronavirus.  It is providing medical workers with face masks, visors, surgical gowns and gloves.

We are aiming to raise £1,500 so any amount you can donate would be greatly appreciated.

We will share our results on this page after the virtual marathon relay event on 1st June with solo photos of our adventures.

Thank you so much.

The Virtual Marathon Relay Team (Paolo, Adam, Helen and Natalie)
