Chalkwell Managing Director Roland Eglinton will raise money for the National Autistic Society when he competes in the London Landmarks Half Marathon on Sunday 3 April.
The event will take in the centre of the capital, passing Westminster, the City, the Tower of London and many other well-known sites.
Says keen runner Mr Eglinton: “There are around 700,000 adults and children in the UK who have autism, including some people in my own life. Also, as a business we take a number of children with special educational needs to school every day, many of whom are on the autism spectrum.
“Autism can affect how people communicate and interact with the world, but with the right support they can live fulfilling lives and go on to do great things.” To sponsor Mr Eglinton in the London Landmarks Half Marathon, visit his JustGiving page.
