ARC LEGAL TEAM TO HIT THE ROAD IN MARATHON FUNDRAISER

Richard Finan, Director of Arc Legal Assistance (Arc Legal), and colleague Ian Brown, Senior Claims Advisor are competing in the 2010 Virgin London Marathon to raise funds for Sense, the national charity that supports and campaigns for deafblind adults and children.

Both men, who are entering their first Virgin London Marathon, will be raising funds under the auspices of the company's corporate responsibility programme, Arc Angels. They will be joined by Matt Barbet, Five News' most popular newsreader, who is also running for Sense.

Commenting on their preparations for the race, Richard Finan said: "I'm training hard but I'm not quite as fit as Ian who is likely to leave me for dust. I hope to complete the race in about five hours and Ian hopes to sprint across the line in a little over four hours. It has the feeling of a tortoise and hare type battle so it will be interesting to see how things actually turn out on the big day."

"Sense is a very important charity carrying out vital work. We're hoping to raise as much as possible to ensure deafblind people can be full and active members of society."
