More than £23,000 has been donated to the National Osteoporosis Society in the name of Rob Berry, who died after completing this year's London Marathon.
The 42-year-old collapsed and later died after crossing the finish line at Sunday's race.
Donations on Mr Berry's JustGiving page have now reached more than £23,000. On the page Mr Berry explained he was running the marathon to raise money for the National Osteoporosis Society - a charity which has supported his mother, who was diagnosed with the condition at the age of 52.
"He was immediately taken to one of our medical facilities where he was treated by four consultants, including one in emergency medicine. He was transferred to St. Mary’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"The organisers of the Virgin Money London Marathon would like to continue to express their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr Berry and our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with them all at this difficult time".
