Mike's a nystagmus super hero - it's official!

On 16 December, just as planned, Southampton born Mike Larcombe, who has congenital nystagmus, set off to walk the entire length of New Zealand. He's doing this to raise funding for research and awareness of nystagmus.

The walk will take around 3.5 months and you can follow Mike every step of the way, catch up with his videos and blog posts or make a donation by heading to his website.

The views are SPECTACULAR!
