Virgin London Marathon Sad News

It is with great sadness that the National Osteoporosis Society has learnt of the death of Robert Berry, one of our runners in this weekend’s London Marathon.

The charity would like to express its heartfelt condolences to Mr Berry’s family and friends.

On the request of the family we will not be releasing any further statements and would ask for your understanding at this sad and difficult time.

Claire Severgnini, CEO of the National Osteoporosis Society said:

“Our immediate concerns are for Mr Berry’s family.  Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with them at this tragic time.”

“We are really touched by the incredible generosity of so many people making donations in tribute to Mr Berry, who wrote so movingly about why he was raising money to help fight the impact of osteoporosis. When the time is right, we would like to discuss with his family the options available for how the National Osteoporosis Society may use the funds raised in his memory.”
