Ben Peterson’s second cousin, Ollie, attends Footsteps and having seen the progress he has made over the past few years, Ben decided to take part in the New York City Marathon, raising money for Footsteps Foundation and helping to support Ollie through his therapy.
Ben crossed the finish line in 4 hours and 25 minutes, which is a real achievement considering the weather conditions on the day. He said: “ It was such a fantastic adventure and the whole experience will be unforgettable. The support around the course was unbelievable.”
Ben has done a fantastic job with the fundraising, with a current total of £3,268. Congratulations Ben!
