Samantha Critchley, partner in the Medical Negligence department, ran the 10th British London Run to help raise vital funds for the Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) in July 2011.
Samantha raised a massive £920 by completing the run on Sunday 11 July and with gift aid the total raised for the charity is £1146.
The CBIT helps children, young people, their families and professionals to come to terms with what has happened and how to deal with the uncertainty that the future holds.
Every 30 minutes, a child or young person will acquire a brain injury. This could be the result of an accident, an illness such as meningitis or encephalitis, a poisoning, a stroke or a brain tumour. A brain injury has a devastating and life-long impact on the child and their whole family.
Samantha has helped raised thousands of pounds across the years by being a regular runner in this event for the CBIT. This year Samantha finished the race in under an hour.
