My story

[p]Why am I taking on the London 2020 Marathon?[/p][p]Right now, people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life with almost 1 in 3 young people with a learning disability spending less than 1 hour outside their home on a typical Saturday. [/p][p]As many of you know my daily work life is based around Inclusive physical activity through sport (Rugby and Wheelchair Rugby specifically) so Mencap's All Move programme has such common focus to my own work. The programme will focus on delivering 26 weeks of team sports to young children to replicate the 26 miles of the London Marathon and will be taking place in SEN schools across England, Scotland and Wales.[/p][p]People with learning disabilities face barriers finding a job, accessing activities in their local community and receiving good quality healthcare. Mencap tackle these issues head on by providing support in a way that meets individual needs and encourages greater independence. [/p][p]They give expert advice and information that empowers people and their families and they campaign relentlessly for changes that bring greater equality for people with a learning disability.[/p][p]By supporting Me and ultimately Team Mencap you will be helping to support people with a learning disability to live the life they choose, and do the things they love.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Mencap. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. [/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Also if when making a donation please feel free to comment and leave me a name of a song to add to my playlist. This way when I here the song I will know I have your support whilst pushing through this challenge.[/p][p]Thank you, Jamie xxx[/p]
