The EQ Foundation have supported Panathlon for many years both through cash investment which enables us to engage many more disabled young people, but also through fundraising and volunteer support at many of our events.
EQ Foundation have supported Panathlon events with staff volunteering at swimming competitions in 2017 and even the Ealing Primary event way back in 2015.
Moreover their staff have fundraised for Panathlon by running every year in the Royal Parks Half Marathon. Most recently this saw Matt Lewis (pictured with his wife Dani) complete the course in November 2021 in 1h 41m – this despite having run the London Marathon just a week before, also raising money for Panathlon!
Jeannie Boyle from EQ Investors has also been a strong supporter of Panathlon for years and has ran for us on many occasions, not only in the Royal Parks Half Marathon, but also in the London Marathon in 2018.
Jeannie (pictured below right after running London) also has volunteered at several Panathlon competitions and said: “Having seen first hand the joy on the faces of the children competing in Panathlon, I know what impact the charity has.”
EQ Foundation has re-committed their support for Panathlon in 2022/23 to the tune of £25,000. This incredibly generous donation will help us deliver opportunities in the year ahead to tens of thousands of children with SEND.
A massive THANK YOU to all at EQ Foundation for your long-term support!
