A PC who was told he would never walk again is to run the London marathon this week.
PC Gareth Rees, a Hertfordshire officer, was on duty at a road traffic accident in 2008 when he was struck by a another vehicle. His legs were badly broken & at one stage he was told he may never walk.
PC Rees has teamed up with PC David Rathband, the officer blinded by Raol Moat to raise cash & awareness of Ã‚Â the Blue Lamp Foundation, a charity started by Rathband to support emergency service personnel criminally injured on duty. Rees will guide Rathband around the 26-mile course. They have already completed a much shorter charity run together.
You can find out more about the charity at their website -Ã‚Â bluelamp-foundation.org
