Looking for something inspiring to help you shift some of your extra Christmas pounds and get fit in the New Year?
Blind Veterans UK is calling on people to run on its behalf.
As the national charity for blind ex-Servicemen and women, Blind Veterans UK provides first class support, rehabilitation and training to blind veterans, regardless of when they served or how they lost their sight. In its three centres in Brighton, Llandudno, North Wales and Sheffield, and in veterans’ own homes, it is able to support blind veterans so that they do not have to battle blindness alone.
Tracy Stratford, Senior Events Officer at Blind Veterans UK, said:
“Brighton is home to our oldest centre where we care for vision impaired ex-Servicemen and women, which is why the Brighton Marathon is especially important to our charity.
“There is still enough time to train and fundraise for this challenge and we will be on hand to give you training plans and cheer you along on the day. Every step you run will make a big difference to the blind veterans we support.”
If you would like to join the race then contact Jackson at Blind Veterans UK for more information on 0207 6167927.
