A little bit about Sam

I was born way back in 1983 - the year of the release of the McNugget and Microsoft Word. I have Cone Dysfunction and Nystagmus, which means fairly strong sensitivity to light (my eyes are secretly blue but I wear brown lenses!), very short sight and occasional oscillopsia (the world shakes about). Oh, and I'm completely colour blind, too.

I've decided to run my third marathon. It's a real privilege to be running for a cause so close to my heart and I'll be giving it my all on the day.

Keeping it in the 'nystagmus' family

Sam currently serves as secretary to the trustees of the Nystagmus Network, a charity founded by his mother, Vivien, soon after he was born.

You can hear Vivien talking about Sam and her drive to set up the charity in our video, The Nystagmus Network Charity Story.
