Blind Paralympian joins blind veterans in 100k walk

Blind paralympian David Clarke is backing our 100k London to Brighton walk and hopes others will join him in the charity challenge.
David Clarke, Britain's most capped blind footballer, is calling on the public to put themselves to the ultimate fitness challenge and sign up for Blind Veterans UK's 100k walk.
David, along with three other Olympic and Paralympic athletes are supporting the 100k walk which takes walkers from Putney in London and ends at our centre in Brighton 24 hours later.
David is not only pledging his support for the charity challenge but he will also be participating in the walk to raise money for Blind Veterans UK. David, who lit the Paralympic cauldron two years ago at the London 2012 Paralympics opening ceremony, says: "I'm proud to be participating in Blind Veterans UK's 100k London to Brighton Walk from Saturday 21st to Sunday 22nd June.
"I'll be joining several of the visually impaired ex-Service men and women supported by Blind Veterans UK on the walk and I am looking forward to raising money for this great charity alongside them.
"Like those supported by Blind Veterans UK, I understand the impact that a visual impairment can have on a person's life - and the drive to make sure that blindness doesn't stop you from aspiring to achieve great things and succeeding at what you love."
David has his own Just Giving page where you can sponsor his 100k challenge.
