A glorious sunny day provided the perfect setting for the inaugural AFC Wimbledon Minithon on Sunday. Over 70 participants completed the course, the fastest being 12 year-old Alex Barbour from Wokingham (20 minutes, 19 seconds), closely followed by Jakub Stegner from Morden (20 minutes, 20 seconds).
All of the AFC Wimbledon management team completed the course, with Jason Moriarty leading the pack (20 minutes, 47 seconds). Terry Brown narrowly beat Stuart Cash (30 minutes, 50 and 51 seconds respectively), just a few minutes ahead of Erik Samuelson (34 minutes, 34 seconds). Simon Bassey and Mike Rayner, with young children in tow, posted a more leisurely time of 53 minutes, 6 seconds.
It will be some time before we know how much money was raised for the Trust's funds and the Mayor of Merton's charities but we will announce this as soon as we can. We do know, however, that over £700 has so far been pledged online for the management team. It is not too late to sponsor the management team - visit Minithon sponsorship if you wish to do so. In addition, Saturday's bucket collection raised £250.
The fundraising team would like to thank all who participated in, volunteered for or spectated at the minithon and all who provided sponsorship for the participants. We would also like to thank thinkFolio for sponsoring the event and Terry's Badges for designing and donating special commemorative badges for all who took part.
