Heroic Endeavours

The Hero's Ascent: Greg's Sponsored Climb to the Summit of Mt. Snowdon

We’ve had some heroic efforts for our Edie lately. Richie Hellon walking 300 miles in 5 days to raise over £4k and John Hammond doing marathon after marathon raising similar amounts, before tackling the gruelling Marathon des Sables for Edie. These people stand out because of the extremes that they go to.

Another man that is standng out as pushing himself to his extremes is Gregory Weston. This amazingly brave man suffered a devastating brain injury in 2011. He spent a month in a coma, during which time doctors had suggested turning off his life support. He survived, spending the following months in critical care, then a high dependency unit, and more than a year after that in a chair.

He fought for the next few years to regain the use of his legs, and he continues to fight to regain their full use. He has been left quite dramatically disabled as a consequence of a simple fall, but he’s never allowed that to keep him down. His positivity has also led to him helping other disabled people at the hospital where he was a patient.

Now Greg wants to help Edie, and he needs support to do so. Please take a look at the poster below, and visit Greg’s JustGiving page, leave him a message, or sponsor him; your encouragement will be enormously appreciated. You can find out additional information on Greg’s Facebook Event Page.
