The support given to Mark by RNIB made him run 26 miles!

Being told I had a detached retina was a life changing moment. I developed an infection in my eye after having an operation to repair a tear in my other retina. This resulted in me losing the sight in my right eye. After losing my sight, I felt a real mix of emotions, and there were times when I had doubts about the future. That’s when I turned my attention to running. I decided to take part in the London Marathon for RNIB. They’d been a huge source of support after I received my sight loss diagnosis, so it made sense to run for them. I took part in my third London Marathon this year and I couldn’t imagine not being part of it. The atmosphere is amazing, completely unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. It’s a great opportunity to raise money for a cause so close to my heart.

You don’t have to run 26 miles to raise cash for us. Find out some of the ways you can raise or donate to RNIB
