23rd September 2017 all-day

Martin Leppard is going to be doing the Brighton colour run on 23rd september to raise money for CRPS UK.

Martin says:

I’m Martin and i’m going to be taking part in the Brighton Color Run.

Now this isn’t anything special apart from the fact that I can’t run – i’m not even that good at walking!

Follwoing a car accident in 2013 I developed CRPS – Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. the NHS definition of CRPS is “a poorly understood condition in which a person experiences persistent severe and dbilitating pain”.

It’s ranked as one of the most painful conditions known to man, the main symptom being an intense burning pain in the affected areas. Every day there are people all over the world that are batling with CRPS. We are all warriors burning for a cure.

Before my accident a 5K run would have been a breeze. Now, I use crutches to get around and the thought if walking 500 meters is exhausting – so 5k is more than a small challenge. I will do everything in my power to get across the finish line.

Thank you for your support – whether you give a lot, give a little or just give me some good luck, I really appreciate it.
