Ark Globe at the London Marathon

Tuesday 05 June 2018

An Ark employee, Tom Rose, volunteered to run the London Marathon on 22 April 2018 to raise funds for our Academy. Tom finished the marathon in 4 hours and 31minutes!

All of our school community was very proud and grateful to Tom for his courage and generosity for volunteering to run the marathon after London Marathon Events donated a guaranteed place to our Academy. Tom works for Ark’s Institute for Teaching as their Operations Director. After finishing he said: “It was such an amazing race, and doing it for Globe really spurred me on when it got really tough at mile 20.” He will also be coming to the academy for an assembly to talk to our students about his inspiring marathon story. Huge thanks to Tom Rose once again for running the marathon and a very successful fundraiser for our academy!
