London Marathon 2021
Sean was due to run in 2019 and this was his message as he asked people to donate for his good friend Charlie who suffered a life changing injury.
”As you all know I was due to run the London marathon in 2019 to raise money for a good friend and gym mate, Charlie Wynn. Due to fight commitments and COVID restrictions this was sadly put on hold”
After a long 3 years Charlie and his family are still battling with his condition and the funding behind it. Charlie has now been moved from a hospital to a private care home where he continues to make steady progress however there is still a long road ahead. At the hospital he was receiving daily treatment which allowed him to make steady progress, now that he is in the care home he does still receive full funding however his physio allotment has been reduced to just 2 hours a week
Although he is receiving 2 hours a week of physio, this is simply not enough and can only be increased with his/his families personal funding. As you can imagine this is very costly for the amount of physio he needs and therefore it is vital that Charlie receives additional funding so that he is able to have consistent and frequent treatment. The aim is to receive enough funding that we can give Charlie 1 hour a day of physio/rehabilitation. This could potentially have a massive impact on Charlies progress and of course his closest family and loved ones.
We want to get Charlie walking again and we know this is possible with your help.
For those of you who don’t know, Charlie was involved in a serious accident during sparring in 2018 changing his life forever. Charlie battled a bleed to the brain which lead to a life saving operation. You can read more about it in the link below:
To end the story, I wasn’t due to be running the marathon at all. This was until I saw my good friend Charlie and his family and it made me understand that Charlie still needs everyone’s help and what better way to do it than to fulfil my promise. With 2 weeks to go, training must now begin… wish me luck and don’t expect a decent time!
This is for you Charlie mate!
