London Marathon 25th April 2021
Great news – the ED Society have managed to get a place for next year’s London Marathon, which has proven to be a really beneficial fundraiser to the Society in previous years.
If you think you would like to run the London Marathon on behalf of the ED Society, and you are confident you can drum up some big support and donations, please get in touch.
The place costs the ED Society £400, so it would be great if you know you will be able to raise more than this for us.
We will announce who the position will go to in August after a live draw.
Please let us know your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
“The greatest thing in life is to do what people say you can’t do”.
Francesca Jones will be heading to the Australian Open this week on a mission to inspire others trying to overcome physical difficulties in pursuit of their goals.
She was born with Ectrodactyly Ectodermal Dysplasia (EEC), which affects the fingers and toes. Fran has three fingers and a thumb on each hand, three toes on her right foot and four toes on her left. She also started life with webbed fingers. The 20 year-old from Bradford has to use an extra lightweight racket with an especially thin handle to accommodate her grip.
