A little while ago we reported on BLS's Jaimie Dorward's intention to run to raise funds for the National Autistic Society. Here's Jaimie to report on a job well done...
I have finally completed my 5k run and £835 so far for National Autistic Society.
The 5k was a Legacy Event that was in Warrington on 22nd July. They run Legacy events throughout the country so people can run for their own reason.

To keep me motivated and on track I ran with my friend who is super fit and competes regularly in Iron Woman competitions in UK & Europe, I managed to finish in 47 minutes! – I was very impressed given that 6 months ago I wouldn’t have even walked a mile. Next time I’ll target under 45 minutes.
People can still sponsor me on my Just Giving page.
A fantastic achievement Jaimie, and great to see you're thinking about the next time!
