Luke runs New York Marathon for RMBF

Luke KerWe are delighted to say that our supporter Luke Ker succesfully completed the New York City Marathon on November 1st, in an excellent time of 3 hours 39 minutes, to raise money for the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund.

Luke trained at Keele Medical School, graduating in 2011, and has worked at Nottingham General Hospital and Boston Hospital. He recently spent a year enjoying the outdoor life while working in New Zealand, where he ran his first marathon. Now that he has returned to the UK, Luke works as a senior house officer in cardiac intensive care at Harefield hospital, and in the future hopes to become an anaesthetist.

Supporting the RMBF is something of a family tradition for Luke. His mother Mary Anne is a physiotherapist who has been a Committee member of our Brentwood Guild for nearly 20 years, and father Nicholas is a retired orthopaedic surgeon who worked at Basildon hospital.

You can donate to Luke’s run via his Justgiving page, which is still open for donations. Please spread the word about Luke’s efforts to friends, family and colleagues.

Our warmest thanks and congratulations to Luke for his fantastic efforts!
