We’re proud to have sent 4 Giggling Genie helpers to the Virgin Money London Marathon this year to host magic mirrors at two charities we love to work with: Cancer Research UK and Child Bereavement UK. Exhausted runners and their supporters were entertained and sent away with some fantastic fun images.
Temperatures exceeded 23 degrees on the course and we’re hugely proud of all the runners out there. It was fantastic to see you at the receptions and hear your reasons for running, incredible fund raising stories and how you managed to deal with the weather. Whilst you are a truly inspirational bunch- I think it’s fair to say you’re unlikely to see a Giggling Genie on the course next year, we’ll stick to what we know- providing recovery entertainment for you!
Cheering from the streets of London at the Marathon is nothing short of humbling, inspirational and a great reminder of the power of people together. Our son ran this year, his stories all have something in common- they’re all about people. Seeing his family on the side line, the friend he made just before the Tower Bridge section, his fellow runners who couldn’t make the finish line and the countless ‘strangers’ screaming his name who put so much effort into empowering the runners on the day.
This got us all a bit philosophical, be it a Marathon, a Wedding, a 21st or Office Party- bringing people together to have an amazing time is a true privilege and one which we don’t take lightly. If you book a Giggling Genie Magic Mirror- be sure to expect 2 highly motivated- fun loving Giggling Genie magic mirror attendants who will grant your wishes and bring your people together to create some amazing memories from your event!
