My story

[p]Hi guys! [/p][p]I decided to do something big (and possibly dumb) personally for 2019 by entering myself into the London Marathon as part of Team Whizz-Kids! [/p][p]If I'm going to finish my first ever marathon, I needed to have a big reason to do it, so I decided to try to raise a tonne of money with your help for a charity that I have worked with in the past year.[/p][p]Some of you may have seen from my social media that I donate time to a charity called Speed of Sight. A charity that gives driving experiences to blind and disabled people. Well, one of their biggest events of the year is a two-day event in Llandow, Wales where we host children from the charity Whizz Kidz![/p][p]Meeting the girl in the profile picture changed my life. Seeing her reaction after getting out of the car was quite emotional, they say a picture is worth a thousand words! Whizz Kids put on a lot of fun activity days to boost life skills as well as give support to improve the day to day lives of these kids.[/p][p]Whizz Kids is an incredible organisation that I fell in love with while volunteeering for Speed of Sight. [/p][p]Their mission:[/p][p]“Our mission is to transform the lives of disabled children by providing the equipment, support and life skills they need, when they need them – giving them the chance to develop their full potential.”[/p][p]My Mission: to help raise £5500 by running in my first Marathon.[/p][p]Why £5500? [/p][p]Because that’s how much a brand new motorized wheelchair will cost to kit out a Whizz-Kid in need![/p][p]Please help with anything you can spare. Even a little will go a long way!![/p][p]yours sincerely[/p][p]Martin [/p]
