On Sunday 8th December 12 runners took on the London Santa Run 2019 in Victoria Park and raised £3,144.50 for Lucy Air Ambulance for Children (Lucy AAC).
Our team, who included 8 Houlihan Lokey employees, our CEO Charlotte, three amazing Lucy AAC supporters and a ‘Christmas pudding’, joined thousands of runners at London’s biggest Santa Run event to take on the festive 5K route.
A sea of red was created around the stage area as participants danced and warmed up, proudly sporting their Santa suit. The crowd then headed to the start line and set off on the course.
After the race, our runners and the Lucy AAC team headed to a local pub to celebrate the team’s achievements. The landlord of the Camel Pub in Bethnal Green kindly hosted our team for a second year and donated £50 to Lucy AAC.
By taking on the London Santa Run, our 12 runners have raised enough to fund a specialist neonatal or paediatric flight team and all the key medical equipment needed for a flight. Thank you so much to all our runners for your incredible contribution to our work!
