The Duke of Sussex sends #Thanks A Billion message to Virgin Money London Marathon Runners
The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, today issued a #Thanks a Billion message to the thousands of runners set to take part in the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon as well as to all those who have raised funds for charity during the history of the event.
#Thanks a Billion is the campaign for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon and celebrates the fact that during this year’s race - on Sunday 28 April - the amount of money raised for charity since the first London Marathon in 1981 will break the £1billion mark.
HRH The Duke of Sussex, who is a patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust, said: “The London Marathon is an extraordinary force for good. It’s the biggest one-day fundraising event on the planet and helps hundreds of charities both at home and abroad, providing vital services to those that need them the most.
