Marathon efforts by four runners have banked £15,000 for a Norfolk-based charity.
Now Break is looking for people to take part in next year's events, to keep up the good work.
The four runners tackling the London Marathon's gruelling course this year were Iain Wilson, owner of Byfords in Holt, Thomas Courtauld from Barningham Hall, Brigitte Clark, wife of Gresham's headmaster Antony, and Dr Ed Morris, a Break supporter from Bristol.
Mr Wilson's money-raising efforts included a week at the café and delicatessen dedicated to fund-raising for Break, which produced £2745 including a £328 bucket collection.
Break provides a range of services for children, adults and families with special needs, including holidays and respite care for people with varying disabilities, giving their families and carers a well earned rest from the strains of full-time caring.
