Story

We will be taking on a challenge in April 2024 to raise money for Spinal Research. Vince is running the London Marathon while Pete bench presses 60kg 10 times every 5 minutes until Vince finishes the marathon.

Pete was born with Spina bifida but he hasn't let that hold him back having won (along with a host of other titles) Worlds Strongest disabled man an incredible 4 times. Despite this Pete is hoping that Vince hits his target of running his first marathon in 4 hours.

If Vince completes the marathon in 4 hours Pete would need to bench press 60kg 480 times which would be a total weight moved of 28,800kg!!!! This is more than the weight of two London double decker buses.

Someone sustains a spinal cord injury every four hours in the UK. Living with an SCI often means a lifetime of health and care costs, as well as the threat of secondary healthcare complications. Spinal Research is the UKs leading medical charity focused on the repair and restoration of the spinal cord, and we exist to beat paralysis.

Spinal Research do not receive governmental funding; all projects are funded by donations. With your help, we can #BeatParalyis.
