emf Edinburgh Marathon Festival (5K) - 2018 emf

Back on the 26th of May, William ran the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 5K race around Arthur's Seat. This was William's first race outside, first race in public, and first race ever really. Up till now William has trained in sports gyms and at home with anyone he can persuade to help him and join in with him. All this training was to help raise some money for the Stroke Association as he felt they had helped his mum when she needed it most. Through sponsorship, William raised £460. William's best time in the gym on a running machine had been gradually whittled down from about 53 minutes to 42 minutes but on the day he managed a personal best of 37m 11s. Thanks to everyone who turned up on the day to support William and all the work that had gone in to making this possible. He's a very happy and proud young man right now. Brilliant effort William and a remarkable achievement. Well done.
