The reason I am running this challenge is because I would like to bring awareness and aid to people who suffer from or have suffered from a spinal injury.
We’ve all been through lockdown due to the corona virus. Being confined to a closed space unable to do anything out of where we reside. For some people with spinal injuries, this is the case of their everyday life. Some cannot do active activities but they still have the passion and drive to stay active. Others are unable to continue in their profession and must make some adjustments to sustain their future.
I admire the courage and strength these guys have to stay motivated and positive while still taking on every day life and the obstacles and challenges it brings. Thus I would also like to take upon a challenge by doing this run and help to contribute to the future of these individuals.
This run will be completed between 5pm Saturday 6th March – 5pm Monday 8th Updates will be available on my instagram: @coleleonards
