Paul Brackley, Tyler Henshaw and Kenny Moor have decided to run the BM10K race in Brighton and Hove to raise money for Albion in the Community.
All three work for Albion in the Communitys disability team and will be taking on the 10k challenge either blindfolded, in a wheelchair, or wearing headphones which block out sound.
Paul, Tyler and Kenny each help coach at Albion in the Communitys regular football sessions for people with a disability and are determined to raise money to help fund the charitys work.
Albion in the Community currently runs upwards of 30 regular sessions across Sussex, attended by more than 500 players, each of whom have a disability. These session costs between £2,500 and £5,000 a year to run, with Paul, Tyler and Kenny setting themselves an ambitious target of raising enough to fund at least one session for the next six months.
Paul Brackley, who is disability manager at Albion in the Community, said: Providing our players with the chance to play the sport they love is integral to everything we do at Albion in the Community.
As well as the significant physical benefits of playing regular sport, many of our players benefit just as much from the positive impact our sessions can have on their mental wellbeing. Being part of a team, learning new skills and making new friends can really boost peoples confidence.
Myself, Tyler and Kenny are all aware of the many barriers which our participants face on a daily basis and we wanted to do something which not only raised money to help fund our sessions, but also raise awareness of some of those challenges.
