Thank you to everyone who expressed their interest in participating in the London Marathon 2020, we shortlisted and are pleased to announce that Dr. Robert Chaffe has been offered the place. Read more about his journey and why he’s chosen to fundraise for the Charity below.
Hi. My name is Robert Chaffe and I am a dentist working privately in London. It was an honour to be selected to run the London Marathon on behalf of the BDA Benevolent Fund. It is a small charity that does a lot to support our fellow professionals while in crisis and has been around for over 135 years! It would be amazing if you could support this wonderful organisation by sponsoring me for the London Marathon in April 2020. Please donate now via my fundraising page.
I love running, it is a way I help to handle stress and keep fit. I have just done the Royal Parks half marathon which is a wonderful event, and have done this before and the great north run many times, so I’m quite an experienced runner, and something I’m incredibly passionate about. I also love my job and it seems so important to help my fellow professionals who are struggling and I hope you can help support them. You can follow my training and progress on my Instagram page @Robertchaffe and on Facebook. I can’t wait to get going!
