My story

[p][br][/p][p]Hello,[/p][p]We are Megan, Freddie, Lee, Charlotte and Tom and we are part of a squad of 10 runners taking part in the 2020 virtual Virgin Money London Marathon and we all have a learning disability.[/p][p]We are running the 40th race for Mencap as they are the Official Charity of the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon.[/p][p]Just like you, people with a learning disability have dreams and ambitions. But being included is one of the biggest battles for people with a learning disability. For too long people with a learning disability have been misunderstood and overlooked.[/p][p]'Here I Am' is a movement of change. We want every single person with a learning disability to feel valued, to be part of society and to be included.[/p][p]This is where you can help. The money you donate will help us take a huge step forward towards greater inclusion for people with a learning disability whilst raising funds for life changing programmes that aim to tackle stigma and help people with a learning disability lead happy and healthy lives just like anyone else.[/p][p]All donations are greatly appreciated.[/p]
