On Sunday, April 28, Emily Dickinson, Bain Capital Private Equity, ran the London Marathon to raise money for Right to Play.
Of her experience, she wrote:
Since joining Bain Capital in December 2017, I have felt inspired by the work Right To Play does week in and out. They support children around the world who are affected by poverty, disease, and war through the simple concept of play. After attending a breakfast meeting with the charity, I was extremely impressed by the way they have such a positive impact on many young lives and I wanted to help with fundraising in any way possible.
I decided to take on London Marathon to push myself to the limits while also raising money for such a fantastic cause. The London Marathon definitely did not disappoint, I had the most amazing day running alongside 42,000 others and raising almost £2,600, I felt honored and privileged to take part in such an incredible event in honor of Right to Play.
