Susan, whose son Ross attends the Mencap Children’s Centre in Belfast, which is run in partnership with the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust is ready to take on the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon this year in aid of Mencap NI, the official charity partner of the event.

Susan, alongside thirteen of her friends will take on this year’s 8-Mile Walk event to raise much-needed funds for Mencap NI.

Ross has been attending the Mencap Children’s Centre since September and Susan states that although we are only half way through the year Ross is making tremendous progress and loves attending the Centre.

Speaking about her fundraising efforts Susan said,

‘As this year is Mencap’s third and final year as charity partners of the Belfast City Marathon I want to raise money that can go towards helping children with a learning disability across Northern Ireland’

‘We as a family are benefitting so much from Mencap’s services that we want to give something back and raise awareness of the various services they provide’
