I started school in Easter just before my 5th birthday, during the summer holidays I was admitted to Edinburgh Children’s hospital and diagnosed as having Perthes Disease.
This is a rare childhood condition that affects the hip, it took 2 years for me to recover from this, for most of those 2 years I was in bed with my legs strapped to splints.
Now at the age of 65 I am taking part in the Scottish Half Marathon 2017 to raise some money for the hospital.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button.
If you can’t give money you can help me by spreading the word, please share my page on FaceBook or Twitter.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
I will be blogging about my training you can find my updates at www.billcoton.com
