Here's why he got involved:
"I did this challenge in aid of gratitude. My cousin Summer, has a condition called Cerebral Palsy. This condition means some physical activities such as running are impossible (without aid) and also poses many other health challenges. Above all, Summer is one of the happiest, friendly and bubbly people I know; she enjoys music, films (Disney in particular), colour, family and especially sneezes (she laughs every time). Despite her setbacks, Summer has a great life: With the help of an amazing ecosystem of people around her to give her opportunities and support, she can experience life in the best possible way. Chailey Heritage Foundation is part of that ecosystem, so this run was done in honour and support of Chailey Heritage."
