Long Serving employee and part time firefighter will run London Marathon

Rodney Milburn, one of our longest serving employees of over 25 years who is also a part time firefighter for 18 years will be raising money for 'Get Kids Going!' - a national charity that gives disabled children and young people up to 26 years the opportunity to participate in sport. 

Rodney said running the marathon is a 'bucket list' item for him to do. He will compete in the race with his fiancé who is running the marathon for her autistic daughter. 

Rodney said he had been training for six weeks 'if and when' he had time between his work and firefighting duties to get ready for the big day on Sunday April 21.  "I think it'll be a good experience," he said. "I'm looking forward to it.

Despite being in good shape because of his work, he still thinks that the London Marathon will be a challenge and did not commit to doing future races.  "Let's just see how London goes," he said. "I'm 52 now so things are getting on a bit. I'm reasonably fit - it's just whether my body will actually take it. I have got arthritis in my knees." 

We all wish Rodney and his fiancé the best of luck in the marathon.
