Jordan completes London Marathon for Paces

A 28-year-old from Sheffield has completed the London Marathon for Paces, the leading specialist centre, charity and school for individuals with Cerebral Palsy and motor disorders.

Jordan Firth completed the 26.2 miles in 4 hours, 16 minutes and 24 seconds cheered on by his family and supporters from the organisation who had travelled to the capital to show their support.

The Ecclesfield School teacher has, to date, raised over £2,450 for Paces and their work supporting children, young people and adults from across South Yorkshire and beyond.

Jordan said:

“Running the London Marathon for Paces was an incredible experience.

“I would like to say huge thank you for the amazing support that I have received. I am so happy that our collective efforts will positively impact the lives of children and adults living with Cerebral Palsy and motor disorders.”

Ruth Wallbank, community and events fundraiser for Paces – who was in London to support Jordan – said:

“We are all so proud of Jordan completing such an incredible challenge to support our children and adults.

“The money he has raised will make a real difference to their lives and the services we can provide to help them now and in the future. Thank you to Jordan and everyone who has supported his marathon challenge.”
