Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
In summer 2016 my cousin Benjamin was as usual competing in a cycling race that was no shock to the family as he is a semi professional athlete. One Sunday morning I woke up to find out from a selfie on Facebook that the race hadn't gone to plan and Ben was hurt in an accident. We all expected Ben to be out of hospital within a couple of hours but unfortunately not the case.
Ben has a spinal cord injury that has left him paralysed from the rib cage down. As I type this Ben is receiving lots of physio/ rehabilitation at Stoke Mandeville. In true Ben fashion he is already getting back into sports which is remarkable - although the last visit I had to take him fish and chips!!
Aspire are a great charity that work with individuals with a spinal cord injury helping them to regain their independence and adapt to a new way of living.
With all that said if Ben can continue making so much progress then surely I can manage a run around London??!
Any donations/ running tips/ support received will be greatly appreciated by not just myself and my family but also this incredible charity.
