Marathon runners do us proud!

Posted on 7th April 2014 by

Spending hours on your feet, stretching yourself to your physical limits, riding an emotional rollercoaster, enduring the elements – and that’s just the Impetus marathon cheer squad who are hoarse but happy today! We are incredibly proud of our three Brighton Marathon runners, who ran the course in under 4½ hours for our ASpire service for adults with Asperger Syndrome. They worked hard for months in the lead up to the big day and did an amazing job, pacing steadily and getting to the end within 5 minutes of each other. Here they are looking tired but deservedly proud.

Aspire Marathon update

Posted on 27th April 2011 by

Aspire would like to say a huge thank you to Aidan Goatley, our runner in the Brighton Marathon who raised a wonderful £320.00 for the project. Unfortunately for Aidan, he was unable to complete the marathon due to injury, but did manage a respectable 13.4 miles of the course. Commiserations and congratulations to him for his efforts. His contribution has paid for a set of books called Glimpses of Aspergers written by Professor Marie Harder of Brighton University, a copy of which will be given to each of our project members to be used with their mentors as a tool to raising self-awareness of Asperger syndrome.
