Until I was 18 I used to go and stay some days and nights and do fun things with Harpenden Mencap. It was good.
There are no more children there but they still looking after adults who live there all the time as well as other things to help people with a learning disability.
I want to help them because all the staff looked after me and helped my family.
I have done other runs already and now want to do this St Albans Half Marathon. We might run or walk - it all depend how slow my Dad is and how many hills I have to push him up ! Next year we do a marathon......
Thank you for helping me - again!
Note from Dad:
