Welling resident Marc House, age 43 is running the London Marathon for Ability Bow on April 23rd.

In his first ever marathon Marc is striving to raise £1350 for our specialist disability gym by running an astounding 26.2 miles! “I have made my campaign personal by involving my family – wife and children – the kids have baked cakes to sell, I have spread the word and networked inside and outside work, and my wife has helped with my training, logistics and total campaign management. It is always easy not to bother or find reasons not to do it, but to raise money for people less fortunate than myself, it feels great and means a great deal.”

Ability Bow is a team of committed individuals striving to support people with disabilities to get fitter and more independent through exercise in our accessible gym. By helping people get fitter, their independence and resilience improves and many live their lives with increased independence. People with disabilities or long-term health conditions can experience many barriers to exercise. It is our mission to break these barriers down, to overcome the obstacles, and help every individual fulfil their highest potential.
