Raising money for
Bournemouth Blind Society
Hello, my name is Stephen. I've been running regularly since December 2014 when I decided I wanted to increase my fitness levels. I began with just running around our local recreation ground and over the years have increased the distance and regularity of my running. At the time of writing I have completed over eighty Parkrun events, several 10 kilometre events and five half marathons.
I enjoy running because it is challenging, allows me to explore my local area and also takes me out of my comfort zone. I have really enjoyed seeing my fitness improve over the years and am grateful for the accomplishments that running has enabled me to achieve.
Bournemouth Marathon 2018
On October 7th 2018, I will be running the Bournemouth Marathon. It is a wonderful course that takes in much of Bournemouth Bay. 26.2 miles with the wind blowing sand into your face and ferocious seagulls dive-bombing you for your water bottle. This is the first time I have run this distance. It will be a challenge but I am doing it for an incredibly worthy cause....
Bournemouth Blind Society was founded in 1911 to help those in Bournemouth and the surrounding area who had visual impairments. The charity is still going strong today and offers a community hub for people with visual impairments in east Dorset. The services they provide include: a sight and hearing resource centre an assistive technology suite and many different activities and groups that support and empower people with visual impairments.
The charity relies heavily on their own fundraising and donations so any money given will be greatly appreciated.
