Bond It employee overcomes disability for charity

Jeremy Helm aims to complete the 26.2 mile Chester Marathon, despite a number of psychical and mental disabilities commonly associated with stroke survivors, including right-sided hemiplegia, epilepsy, depression, concentration/memory loss, and fatigue.

Helm said: “Running has long been a major passion in my life and I have previously represented Yorkshire as a disabled athlete. I’m also a longstanding member of Holmfirth Harriers Athletics Club.

“This is the first time I’ve run a marathon, however. I’m looking forward to the race with a mix of anticipation and excitement. It’s going to be great to be able raise not only funds for Different Strokes but also awareness of the issues and effects of head injuries.”

Helm is widely sponsored by the Bond It team, but in order to raise as much money as possible, he is continuing to look for additional donations and support.
