Amanda Newton, the mum left paralysed by a cycling accident last year, will start this year’s Bognor Prom 10k on Sunday, May 15.

With the closing date for entries being May 5, time is running out to enter but there are still a few places left.

The race will be set off by Amanda, a mum-of-four from Yapton, who is in a wheelchair. She can no longer run but organisers are looking to make the event wheelchair friendly in the near future.

Despite her disability, Amanda has already taken part in a number of sporting events including Bognor Parkrun.

This year the Charitable partner is Stonepillow, who are a local charity who provide help to homeless and vulnerable people in the local area. Helping them to get off the streets in to work and back to life. If people are undecided who to raise funds for they could consider them.
