Story

I'm doing 2000 wheelchair miles this year.

In 2020, at age 48, I contracted a neurological condition which put me in a wheelchair. It's a progressive condition and I have no idea how much time I have left or what will go wrong next.

In 2922 and 2023I did ten wheelchair half marathons in aid of nia. a women-led, women-only, secular, rights-based registered charity which, since 1975, has been delivering services to women and girls who are survivors of sexual and domestic violence and abuse, including
prostitution.

In 2024 I'll do at least 5 more and I've also pledged to do 2000 miles in my chair between 21/0723 and 21/07/24.

nia is an amazing charity which does vital work, sadly and sorely needed. You can look at some of their recent incredible achievements here.
