Richard is running the 5k event alongside Eli. “Eli says he is very fast and I believe him,” says Richard who is less confident of the speed he can muster. “I do jog every morning, but very slowly and the pace of the job means I only get out for 30 minutes every day.”
Richard joked that his fundraising target for Sunday is £2.3m – the amount Kisharon needs every year to maintain its services, and you can support the duo through their joint fundraising page here.
Events organised throughout Learning Disability Week across the country have shown how sport and physical activity can reduce loneliness and isolation and improve health and wellbeing.
More than 6,500 adults and children are expected to take part in the Community Fun Run, with stalls and sideshows at the event making it a popular day out for all the family.<< Back
