On 23 April 2017, Michael Schmid of FGV Cambridge Nanosystems joined 50,000+ courageous runners in the London Marathon 2017 in the hope of raising £3000 in sponsorship for the ‘Save the Rhino’ charity organisation, which provides funds for rhino conservation programmes in Africa and Asia.

Michael run 26 miles 385 yards in a 12kg rhino costume shown in the photo above.

The whole FGV Cambridge team is very proud of Michael’s achievement and commitment to this worthy cause.
