Charity number: 1169380

In the summer of 2014 Amy took on her massive challenge of running 53 marathons in 53 consecutive days in 53 different towns and cities around the UK.Having both long being interested about raising money for charity and the various discussions we had during the long days of 53:53 we made the decision to start up our own charity. Both of us know people who have disabilities and have witnessed first hand how difficult it can be for them to either become or to stay active. Sometimes simple things like a trip to the gym or swimming pool can be hard for them to achieve, and keeping in line with Amy’s philosophy of 53:53 to help people get active we wanted to help make being active available to people with disabilities. Our objective is to raise money so we can use this money to help people with disabilities directly or via other charity organisations.
