Running and raising money to save lives!

2 Hours 16 minutes 3 seconds – That’s what it took Ian (SMART Area Manager) to raise £580 towards a defibrillator for SMART Howard House.

Ian completed the Oxford half marathon on the 8th October, raising money to purchase a fully automatic defibrillator for SMART Howard House.

Ian said “I completed the half marathon in 2 hours and 16 minutes, the last 2 miles were very painful, but I got there in the end! I am extremely grateful to everyone who sponsored me. Having a defibrillator on site significantly increases a person’s chance of survival in the event of a cardiac arrest, so this has helped to make the service safer.”

SMART Howard House is a residential drug and alcohol detoxification service in Oxford.
