My story

[p]I want to raise awareness of the Special Olympics so I am running on behalf of The Special Olympics Sheffield. I work for a Risk Management Software company called Xactium. Xactium sponsored the Special Olympics that was based in Sheffield in 2017, Xactium are very supportive of me running this event.[/p][p]The Special Olympics is a fantastic event that allows athletes with learning difficulties an opportunity to gain many skills including self confidence, social competence, improved self esteem and also gain access to world class coaching and facilities.[/p][p]On a personal level I have always wanted to run the London Marathon as I see it as one of the ultimate challenges. I am hoping that the training will get me back to my fighting weight! So during training I intend to lose 3 stone in 6 months. This is going to be the hardest thing that I have ever done so would really appreciate any support you can give me.[/p][p]Many thanks [/p][p]Matt[/p]
