Blind runner, Wali, will tackle London Marathon in support of British Blind Sport

Wali is running the Virgin Money London Marathon raising vital funds for British Blind Sport, helping more people living with sight loss to enjoy sport and physical activity.

10 years ago, Wali's world changed forever. whilst working as an Interpreter with the British Forces in Afghanistan, when an improvised explosive devise by the roadside blew up in his face. When he woke up from a coma, Wali had lost his sight.

Wali has been training hard with his guide runner, Gareth, in preparation for this extreme endurance race which he thought wouldn't be possible after losing his sight. Thanks to the support of his running partner, Wali and Gareth will be combating this famous race on Sunday 28th April in support of British Blind Sport.

If you are in London supporting the runners in the Virgin Money London Marathon, don't forget to scream encouragement to Wali in the blue and red BBS running vest and his guide, Gareth.

You can still donate here in support of the Wali, Gareth and the rest of the team of brave runners who completed the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday.

All money raised will support projects helping to create more opportunities for people living with sight loss to get active.
