24 Marathons and Everest 4 times over
A friend to the centre Neil Foster is running 630 miles for charity, this is the equivalent of 24 marathons, during which he will cover the height of Mount Everest 4 times over.
His aim is to raise £10,000 for to support local disability sports through the Leicester-Shire and Rutland Inclusive Sports Association (LARISA) and within 2 local schools. Ellesmere College Leicester and Ashmount School Loughborough.
The funds will help to both schools purchase major pieces of sports equipment that will not be covered by their own budgets or relocation costs, and to support LARISA in developing sport for disabled people.
