from Co. Down, Northern Ireland
We are a family that love to run together consisting of Mum (Sandra), Dad (David), and the main man himself, our son Aaron. Due to Aaron’s complex needs, we both care for him full time at home. We run all over the UK & Ireland promoting inclusion and equality for people with complex needs. Aaron had a kidney transplant in 2010, receiving his new kidney from his Dad.
My biggest achievements
Completing 42 marathons together as a family. Aaron being named as one of the UK's most influential disabled people in 2019. Receiving the Lord Mayors medal at Dublin City marathon in 2016. Run in all 32 counties on the Island of Ireland. Working with Manchester marathon to see it become fully inclusive for assisted runners in 2019.

My next goals and projects
As Aaron is immunosuppressed we are shielding him due to Covid 19, but we hope to attend events as soon as it is safe to do so. To one day run London Marathon (Assisted Runners currently not allowed). Continue to promote inclusion and equality for people with complex needs. Hopefully inspire others.
