UPakWeShip UK sponsors London Marathon runner.
If you see this bloke running around the lanes of Devon, be careful overtaking him. Actually, there is more chance he will be overtaking you!
His name is Darren Osmond and in case you are wondering, he does not have a brother called Donnie. He does however have a lovely wife called Louise who does a fabulous job looking after our UPakWeShip customers who are moving into the UK from overseas.
On Sunday 26 April 2020 Darren will be taking on the challenge of the London Marathon with the aim of fulfilling a lifelong goal and raising £2000 for Meningitis now.
Darren is a keen runner but running a full Marathon is a lot further than what he would normally do. He says his aim if possible is to get a sub 3 hour time, which he knows, is a huge task. He says he will get the inspiration to train hard though from his four children Lily 10, Jack 7, Elsie 4 and Ivy 3 months.
Meningitis kills more under 5’s in the UK than any other infectious disease and is still the most feared by parents. Seeing their child suffer is something no parent should have to go through and with support we can help fight back against this disease.
UPakWeShip UK is very proud of Darren and his running achievements. He has a wonderful family and is a great Dad. Helping sponsor Darren and supporting Meningitis Now is a great combination.
We wish him luck with his training and will check in a few times before the London Marathon next April to see how he is doing.

Good luck Darren from all of team UPakWeShip in the USA, Europe and of course the UK.
