Christopher’s Running Story
I am doing the London marathon for mencap because I was first inspired by mo farah at the 2012 London Olympics and I thought to myself I can do that I started my first parkrun and I could barely run it.. Right now, people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life with almost 1 in 3 young people with a learning disability spending less than 1 hour outside their home on a typical Saturday.They face barriers finding a job, accessing activities in their local community and receiving good quality healthcare. We tackle these issues head on by providing support in a way that meets individual needs and encourages greater independence.We give expert advice and information that empowers people and their families. And we campaign relentlessly for changes that brings greater equality for people with a learning disability.By supporting Team Mencap you will be helping us to support people with a learning disability to live the life they choose, and do the things they love.
