Men's 10k Glasgow 2018
Massive congratulations and thank you to all the men who took part in the Men's 10K in Glasgow this year including our Fundraiser of The Year Alan who can not only claim to have done the 10K but he also completed The West Highland Way last week!! He inspires our amputees continuously......
In the ensuing years, Alan suffered a heart attack and had a double bypass. Incredibly, in December of 2016 Alan then got an infection in his other leg which was again operated on and amputated.
On top of his own health complications, Alan lost his best friend Jim to cancer after his first leg amputation and took part today in a T-shirt with Jim’s photo printed on the back.
“Losing my legs made me even more determined to take part in events like the Men’s 10K. I recently did The KiltWalk and completed the West Highland Way too.
I am also fundraising for Finding Your Feet Charity who support those affected by amputation or limb difference. The charity saved me from spiralling into oblivion and gave me and my family confidence to not let my disability defeat me.
Jim was here in spirit with me today and it was a great way to remember him as well as support a brilliant charity.”
