About me

I'm a cheeky, loving and inspirational person. I started running with my Dad, Grumpy Nick, in 2017 and - like Forest Gump - I haven't stopped since, completing the London Marathon twice.

People with a learning disability can teach the world about living life to the fullest.

Myth to bust: Non-verbal people can't contribute and join in with everyone else. Even though I can't speak, I can hear and understand what's being said. Don't ignore us.
