Brave Gareth takes on marathon challenge for Starlight

A full marathon is a massive achievement for even the fittest of runners but, for brave Gareth Bishop from Bangor, the 26.2 mile Belfast Marathon is nothing short of a herculean effort! In March 2007, Gareth was involved in a serious car accident and, having broken his back, Gareth faced a very long road to recovery.

Gareth is a franchisee for Tubz, a manufacturer in the vending business that is a corporate supporter of Starlight.  He heard about Starlight’s work and decided to sign up for the Belfast Marathon to raise funds for the charity.  It will be an enormous challenge for him but he is determined to reach the finish line and help Starlight make the wishes of brave children come true.
