This is Richard from Essex – he’s stepping up to the challenge of a lifetime as he tackles two marathons (Brighton and London) in the space of just two weeks, all to raise funds for Hft! “Hft is a hugely important organisation and I’m proud to be doing my bit to raise awareness for adults with learning disabilities. Hft does a fantastic job of providing anything from supported living to days out for some of the most vulnerable people in society. I have some great memories from running the London Marathon for Hft in 2016 and genuinely consider it to be an honour to be raising money for them again this year. I’ve always liked a challenge and this is my biggest one yet!”– Richard More on our blog at Hft.org.uk/blog #Marathonman #TeamHft #Essex #Hornchurch #Marathon #brightonmarathon2019 #brightonmarathon #londonmarathon #londonmarathon2019 #marathontraining #VLM2019 #VLM #VLMtraining #runningcommunity #2in2 #runnersworld #fundraising #fundraisingforacause #charityfundraising #fitnessfanatic
