Rob Camm's astonishing half marathon

We are so proud of SpecialEffect Ambassador Rob Camm and his fantastic team of family and friends, who braved the treacherous conditions to triumph in the Great Bristol Half Marathon! Rob completed the whole of the race in his powered wheelchair.

The rain and cold could not dampen the spirits of #TeamRob or the Bristolian crowd, who cheered them all the way along the 13.1 mile route and across the finish line to a heroes' welcome!

Rob was the first person SpecialEffect helped through our StarGaze project and has previously supported our work by becoming the world's first tetraplegic to compete in a Tough Mudder. So far his participation in the Great Bristol Half has generated an incredible £15,000 in donations (online and offline) and we'd like to thank everyone involved for making today such a terrific success!
