Samantha Critchley, partner in the Medical Negligence department, ran the 2011 Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon to help raise vital funds for Scope on 9 October 2011.

Samantha raised over £900 by completing the 13.1 mile run. Samantha finished the race in 2 hours 10 minutes and 52 seconds.

Scope is a disability organisation in England and Wales whose focus is on people with cerebral palsy. Scope provides a number of support, information and campaign services. In addition they create opportunities for education, employment and independent living.

After the race Sam said "a big thank you to all the Scope supporters on the way round. It really spurred me on and made all the difference and reminded me exactly why I was running".

Francesca at Scope said "Thank you so much for raising over £900, this is such a fantastic amount and will make such a difference to the lives of disabled people and their families. We are so glad the support spurred you on and encouraged you on your way round the course, as your support means so much to us we are glad to be able something back to you. It would fantastic to have you on the team next year".
