Jon Hastie will be taking part in a 28 day marathon to help raise money for young adults who suffer from disabilities, by driving his wheelchair for 28 miles.
Mr Hastie who was originally from Worthing but now lives in Shoreham - by- Sea suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy - a progressive muscle-wasting condition.
The money raised will go to the charity he co-founded which helps support other adults living with Duchenne.
His challenge started on 1st February and by day two he had already raised £2000.
I'm determined to complete the challenge and raise money for our cause. I've been blown away by the generosity we've seen so far and how much support everyone has shown us. It makes it all worth the effort it takes to brave the elements!

I can think of no other person who is more deserving of such an honour. She has given so much, helping others by taking up the mantle and raising £40,000 to benefit other women who have been diagnosed with cancer, despite her own ill health, and this shows exactly what sort of a person she is.
