Reasons we run — Benjamin

11 April 2017

Short series featuring some of the amazing people running this year's London Marathon for our charity.

Benjamin Dickson

Benjamin DicksonBenjamin is registered blind and will be running the marathon without a guide!

‘I'm registered blind and have been unable to work since gaining my degree some 17 years ago.

‘I have very minimal sight, enabling me to just about run with no co-runner as an aid for vision.’

He is running in support of Newlands House.

‘I chose to run for Leonard Cheshire because of the great work I know they do.

‘I have a friend who lives at Newlands House and when I’ve visited I’ve scarcely been able to believe the high standard of care. He is very happy in his surroundings.’

This is just one of six marathons Benjamin will be taking on this summer!

You can support him via his JustGiving page.
