1,000 Miles in 200 Days Fundraiser

But she hasn’t let her impairments get in the way of her ambition to achieve and inspire.

For example, she plays football at the Torquay United club for people with disabilities, which has helped her confidence to grow tremendously since she joined in 2012.

And now, at the age of 27, she is embarking on a fundraising challenge to raise money for Aniridia Network UK.

Laura is aiming to walk 1,000 miles in 200 days, walking 5 miles a day. The challenge will start on 30th July 2018 and end on 15th February 2019. Laura says she is doing this to help others achieve in similar ways.

She is aiming to raise £500, and would be very grateful if you can sponsor her and donate via her Just Giving page.

A big thank you to Laura for doing this for us, and to everyone who supports her. We wish her the very best for the challenge!
