The story behind

Welcome to my page! Please share and donate. My story is below.

On June 29th 2012, at the age of 23, my brother (Oliver Thorn) was involved in a motorbike accident in which a land-rover pulled out in front of him. In that split second, life as my family knew it changed in an instant as we were suddenly introduced to a whole new world since Oliver is now paralyzed from the chest down. Since the accident, despite many horrible setbacks, he has gone from strength to strength and has new ambitions to qualify and compete in the 2018 Winter Paralympics - we are all immensely proud of him!

However, the fact still remains that he is paralyzed. He will never be able to enjoy life's simple pleasures like running, taking his dog to the park for a run or simply walking to the shops that so many of us take for granted.

Thousands of people are affected by spinal cord injuries every year, each having to come to terms with a completely new challenging life.

'Wings For Life' is an incredible charity with one mission: to find a cure. Please help me raise funds by sponsoring me as it could change thousands of lives for the better!

Thank you for your support, Ellie
