Sadly Nystagmus Network trustee and London marathon runner, Sam Jones has been forced to pull out of Sunday’s run due to a knee injury.
Sam was all geared up to run his third marathon to raise money for the charity founded by his mother, Vivien, shortly after his birth and nystagmus diagnosis in 1984. Read all about Sam in our Focus newsletter, here.
A seasoned runner, Sam has unfortunately been plagued by a recurring knee injury, which, despite rest and repeated physiotherapy sessions, is refusing to allow him to cover the full 26 miles.
Having won his 2019 place in the ballot, Sam had been training and fundraising hard. His sponsorship total stands at well in excess of £1,000 and his supporters have generously pledged that the money will still come to the charity where it will go towards nystagmus research.
Nystagmus Network members, Sam’s fellow trustees and staff wish Sam a full recovery and thank him wholeheartedly for his dedication.
