The Money Charity, the UK’s financial capability charity, announces its first runner in the London Marathon will be Tim Perkins, Co-Founder of Nudge.
Steph Hayter, Acting Chief Executive of The Money Charity said:
“This is the first time The Money Charity have had a runner in the London Marathon and we are delighted to support Tim’s challenge. Tim and the team at Nudge share our vision of improving the UK’s financial capability, and raising money through initiatives such as the Marathon enable us to help more people stay on top of their money, and live happier and more positive lives as a result.”
Tim Perkins, Co-Founder of Nudge comments:
“I’m delighted to be supporting the fantastic work of The Money Charity by running the London Marathon…possibly in fancy dress! Financial Wellness is an enormous problem in the UK so I’m immensely proud to lead Nudge in our mission to make money simpler. As partners, The Money Charity and Nudge are completely aligned on the need for independent and inclusive Financial Education as a means of tackling the Financial Wellness issue in the UK.”
Tim is hoping to run the marathon in a money tree costume, achieving a Guinness World Record of the fastest marathon ran while dressed as a tree. He only has to run the marathon under 4 and a half hours to get the record!
