I'm Ted and I've been registered blind since I was a baby.

I'm going to run 26.2 miles over 26 days starting on Sunday 26 April, by doing guided runs during my exercise time in my garden or in the field behind our house with my mum, dad or my big sister Hollie. My friend JayJay will trot alongside and wag his tail in support!

If it rains I will run on my treadmill, which is not my favourite thing!

UPDATE: I DID IT! all 26 days - and I got faster every day - I even ran backwards on my treadmill! Mum and Dad say they have never had so much exercise! Thanks everyone who has supported me and please keep giving..... its over to Team Ted now to help me hit my target..... Go Team Ted! Can't believe that a real England cricketer, Jos Buttler, has joined the team. And also that I got video messages from astronaut Tim Peake, TV presenter Clare Balding and amazing cyclist Geraint Thomas .... they really helped me get through the last few days.

Will you help me by either making a donation or you could think of your own 2.6 challenge. Mum says you could bake 26 cakes for your neighbours, or draw 26 rainbows, or walk 2.6 kms backwards. Living Paintings books mean the world to me and I need your help.

Me and my big sister Hollie, Dad and Mum. They say they're going to get lots of extra exercise running with me!

Here is a video about why I love Living Paintings:

Ted's amazing challenge to run a marathon over 26 days runs from 26 April - 21 May 2020. Team Ted and all the fundraising pages on JustGiving will be live to collect donations until August. Thank you for your support.
