Olympians and Paralympians call on public to sign up for ultimate fitness challenge
“Like those supported by Blind Veterans UK, I understand the impact that a visual impairment can have on a person’s life – and the drive to make sure that blindness doesn’t stop you from aspiring to achieve great things and succeeding at what you love.”
Partially-sighted Paralympic sprinter David Devine, who won two Bronze medals during the 2012 Paralympics, said; “It is great that so many people will be taking part in Blind Veterans UK’s 100k 24 hour Walk this June. It’ll be a gruelling challenge, and I’m sure won’t come without a few blisters along the way!
“However, the results that will come of the efforts of the people participating will be felt right across the UK. As someone with a sight impairment, I have a huge respect for Blind Veterans UK’s valuable work and I’d urge the public to support this worthy cause.”
