Our Friday fundraiser - running legend Steve Giller

Our Friday featured fundraiser this week is Steve Giller, who’s about to take on the Carsington 7+, a 12.5km race around the stunning Carsington Reservoir in Derbyshire on Saturday.


“Basically I’ve sat on my backside for over six months,” he says on his Justgiving page. “This is going to hurt. A lot.”

Steve says he’s supporting us because he’s a nerd. “What SpecialEffect can create with a soldering iron and a couple of oversized buttons amazes me! As a teenager I had a friend who, like me, was massively into his computer. He had cerebral palsy and could only type with one finger, but that was on the arm that he couldn't control, so he had to use the other hand to place his finger on each key, one press at a time, using a metal sheet with holes in bolted over the keyboard."

"If SpecialEffect had been around back then he would have been able to enjoy his hobby on a whole new level.”

Thanks Steve, we really appreciate the pain you're putting yourself through, and all the best in the predicted heatwave!
