With the gammy knee now mended Ramsay has run the London Marathon in 2004, 2005 and 2007 to support Tommy’s, the baby charity. In 2004, he and his wife, Tana, raised $28,000. Ramsay commented: “I’m proud to have run the Marathon for Tommy’s, the baby charity – their cause is one very close to my heart, especially as my own twins were born three weeks prematurely in 1999″. He aims to complete ten marathons in consecutive years. He runs three times a week, two hours a time. The Gordon Ramsay “Buy a Brick” appeal launched in September 2004 helped the Scottish Spina Bifida Association build a new Family Support Centre and Head Office in Glasgow. In November 2007 Ramsay will host a St Andrew’s Day Gala Dinner at Stirling Castle in aid of the Association.
