  • Team of eight raise £50,000 for The Children’s Trust
  • Over 2,000 miles covered in training

With enough training miles under their belts for a round trip to Kia’s factory in Slovakia, Team Kia has raised £50,000 to support children’s charity ‘The Children’s Trust’ at the 2018 London Marathon.

With President and CEO Paul Philpott running for the second year, he was joined by seven colleagues from across the company running on one of the hottest days of the year and certainly in the hottest London marathon on record, the team of eight battled the heat and were spurred on by the massive crowds surrounding the course.

Team Kia were running on behalf of Kia’s UK charity partner, The Children’s Trust which provides specialised care and support for young people affected by brain injury – often sustained in road traffic accidents.

The charity has its head office and national care centre near Kia’s Walton-on-Thames, Surrey base.

Philpott said: “Running in this year’s London marathon in record temperatures was so tough but it’s been an incredibly positive experience. I’m so proud of the team in taking the time to train and compete in the marathon and knowing that we have raised £50,000 for The Children’s Trust makes every step worth it. I know this money will make a huge difference to the lives of young people with brain injuries”.
