McGrath’s Service Coordinator and Pearly King completes Charity Half Marathon

Keith Crowe our Service Coordinator has completed a Half Marathon in his role as a Pearly King, in phenomenal time of just under three hours.

Keith has been in role as Hackney’s Pearly King for 15 years and this March completed the Half Marathon in aid of St Joseph’s Hospice in Hackney raising an amazing £1,700 for the charity.

Keith keeps himself fit by cycling 90 miles a week to and from work and started training for this new challenge in the new year with no running experience. Keith’s target was to complete the route in three hours and finished astonishingly in just 2 hours and 44 minutes.

Donations are still being received via Keith’s justgiving page.
