Mover Steve runs marathon to help Fight for Sight

Jun 22, 2015
Steve Fanning, a removals specialist at A-Staff Solution Ltd ditched boxes for running shoes on 26 April to compete in the Virgin London Marathon.

Steve was running in memory of his late grandmother who suffered from age-related macular degeneration, which caused her to lose her sight.  Funds raised from the run will be donated to his chosen charity Fight for Sight which funds pioneering eye research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease.

Steve, who completed the marathon in 4 hours and 45 minutes said, "The atmosphere was absolutely electric and the support from the crowd definitely made it easier getting around the course. I was pleased to cross the finish line and raise awareness and funds for such a great charity as Fight for Sight. I'm already considering running again next year."
