‘Seeing my family and people from Leonard Cheshire out there cheering me on made all of the difference. It really helped get me through.’ — Deborah, 2019 runner

8 out of 10 disabled people wer not born with their disability, so here's why our fundraising target is £1,800.
Many have become disabled after an accident, or from a stroke, cancer or developing conditions like multiple sclerosis or motor neurone disease. These life-changing circumstances can stop people in their tracks. Your marathon fundraising will make sure they can live a full life again, and achieve their dreams.
