Anne Curtis just finished the 38th London Marathon last Sunday, April 22, 2018, in 5 hours, 12 minutes and raised P278,116 for UNICEF.
Tens and thousands of runners lined up in the streets of London to race the hottest London Marathon race ever recorded at 23.2C. And in this multitude of runners, there’s Anne Curtis who was admittedly both nervous and excited to run her 2nd marathon
“Super nervous but running for the Filipino Youth will keep me inspired each kilometre!” – Anne Curtis
Anne has been a familiar face in the Philippine Running Community and she’s indeed participated in several fun runs in the country. But this time around, Anne Curtis takes on the challenge to run one of the world’s most popular marathon to raise funds for the UNICEF (United Nation Children’s Fund) Foundation, where she is a Celebrity Advocate for Children.
She finished the race in 5 hours and 12 minutes with the following splits:
In her latest Instagram post, the Philippine Celebrity expressed her gratitude to all those who donated. Her initial target was to raise P84,000 pesos – an amount that will help the UNICEF in funding more programs for the Filipino children. Thankfully, many kind-hearted individuals have heard her plea and took action. Now, the current donations have reached P278,116 which is 330% more than the initial target amount!
