On the 22nd April, student Ben Low ran the London Marathon for The OHMI Trust. Ben is a keen musician who has been playing the trumpet and drums for over 10 years and he’s studying physics at Cardiff University! So why has Ben got marathon fever? Ben explains:
“I decided to take on the challenge because I’ve always enjoyed doing cross country and other short distance running and after my Dad became involved with The OHMI Trust and I heard about the marathon, it seemed like too good an opportunity to miss. I thought it would be a great opportunity to push myself to the limit as well as fundraising for a great charity. I’m very thankful to have this opportunity and I’m looking forward to representing OHMI at such a prestigious event.” Ben Low
