Andrejs Lavrenova Runs The London Marathon

All family and friends of Andrejs Lavrennova are very proud of him and Dublcheck's customers have been very impressed; it takes some courage to prepare and finish the marathon.

It is especially for Lavrenova because he had life changing accident when he was 17 years old. He broke his cervical spine in two places and was lucky to be alive.

He then had to stop all his sports activities (seven years karate) and any future plans of sports career. Only now, more than 10 years later, he felt he wanted to start sports again. He loves running and has joined his local running club. One challenge he took to prove to himself that he can do it was to run the London Marathon.

It was an honour for him to run on behalf of MACS charity as this is such a good cause to raise money for. Having a daughter himself he can only imagine what parents go through when their child is not well. He pledged to raise £1,250 and has nearly reached his target. He has now applied for a place in London Marathon 2015 and hopes to get a ballot place. He enjoys running and feels it is his lifestyle now and he loves to challenge himself so there is more things to try.

Lavrenova said: ”I have to add that I only started to run because he now have more time to do this by working flexible hours! Running our Dublcheck business has given us time to do thing I enjoy.”
