Disabled people stand to benefit after a Milton Keynes mother of three pledged to push through the pain barrier to run the London Marathon for Leonard Cheshire Disability.
Claire Marr, a primary school teacher taking on her second marathon, is looking to raise £1,500 with her running partner Gillian Bailey.
“I can’t begin to imagine the struggles those with disabilities have to cope with on a daily basis,” said Claire.
“I’m really proud to be running for a charity that can make a real difference.”
“I’d like the money to be spent on something that provides greater access to comfort and enjoyment.”
The 40-year-old will be among 38,000 runners taking on the famous race on April 24.
Claire is finding training a challenge, both physically and mentally.
“I live with severe pelvic pain as a result of having my three children and exist on Ibuprofen and determination to get through the longer runs.”
