EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
I started running 8 years ago to keep fit and my passion for running has increased over the years. I am a team member of a local road running club and we take part in the county road running league. I run a business with my family providing fire fighting training around the world, and this gives me the flexibility and support to train for all my challenges. I have a 10 year old son, Teddy and a cat called Sky.
My best friend, Shaun, moved to Boston and since running my first marathon in 2011 I have always hoped to qualify for a place in the Boston Marathon so I can spend time with my friends whilst taking part in an amazing event!
Shaun is the statewide Director for the Massachsuetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired and I am thrilled to support him and the wonderful work his organization does to improve peoples quality of life.
All funds raised support MABVI's statewide network of vision rehabilitation services, which include 12 low vision clinics, 33 low vision support groups, and 300 volunteers matched 1:1 with blind individuals.
