King is Queen of London Marathon
She did it! PE Teacher Emily King completed an epic run yesterday in the TCS London Marathon, in just four hours and two minutes. Mrs King signed up for the gruelling 26 mile run in memory of former Gordon's Director of Sport and friend, Steve Monk who also served in the Army PT Corps. Crowning her fantastic run was the news that she had also raised £6,000 for ABF The Soldiers' Charity through generous donations by students, parents, staff and friends of Steve Monk. After the run, Mrs King said: “I can’t thank everyone enough for all their support and generous donations to The ABF. It was an awesome day, tough but an incredible and unforgettable experience and the support all the way round was amazing! I was proud to run in Steve’s memory and I know he was with me every step of the way”. Donations can still be made to Mrs King's Justgiving page here.
