Terrence Higgins Trust Wins Big at Marathon


The Terrence Higgins Trust, the UK's largest HIV service organisation and rooted in the LGBTQIA and African-Caribbean communities, reports that they had a fantastic time at the recent London Marathon.  A press release from the charity reveals more details:  "Our Team Terry runners made London Marathon 2024 our biggest yet, with over 50 dedicated runners taking on 26.2 miles to help us end new cases of HIV in the UK by 2030. Together, they not only crossed the finish line but also raised over an astonishing £92,000, with donations still pouring in.   We had a fabulous time at our Team Terry Cheer Point, dancing, singing and cheering to spur our runners on. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every individual who contributed to making this day a resounding success.   Danny, who took part 10 years on from his own HIV diagnosis, said: 'When I was diagnosed with HIV at 18, I was so fearful that I wouldn’t have a normal life. I’m doing the London Marathon to celebrate how far I’ve come since then and to show that I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been. I literally take a pill a day and that’s it. It keeps my immune system healthy and means I can’t pass HIV on to my fiancé.'"
