My story

[p] Hi Everyone,[/p][p]I am running the 2019 London Marathon this will be the biggest challenge I have ever undertaken having played football at a high level and had a number of serious operations as a result of my CP. I want to show people that just because you have CP you shouldn't use that as an excuse and anything is possible if you are committed and determined. I have never seen my disability as a hindrance, I see it more as an excuse to show off what the human body can do with a condition like CP. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I would also like to show you children with CP that you can be the same as anyone else as I looked up to a number of CP footballers when I was younger and now if I could be that role model that would be amazing. The London marathon is the greatest race in the world and to say that I have run it for a charity that helped me get into sport from such a young age and to give something back to them would be phenomenal [/p][p]CP Sport is a charity that Is very close to my heart as they introduced me to 7 aside football when I was around 8 or 9 and I haven't stopped playing since, working my way up from a Sunday morning session to an FA Centre of Excellence on to playing for Tottenham Hotspur and England Development. My love of sport is down to them and through this I have developed friendships that I will keep for a lifetime. By rasing money for CP sport I hope I can provide a child or young person the same journey through sport that I have and inspire them to go on and find a sport that they enjoy, make friendships and hopefully go on and represent their country in.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for everyone who is supporting me any donation you are able to make will go a long way![/p][p]To find out more about CP sport click here! http://www.cpsport.org/[/p]
