Celebrating Learning Disability Week with Mencap Liverpool
18 June 2015
Mencap Liverpool Get Going running group started in January 2015 for people with a learning disability.
Most of its members were beginner runners and some have already progressed to being able to run 3km. Others were already runners but everyone enjoys the social element of making new friends, even the local staff have joined in!
The group now has 12 members who go out running whatever the weather.
Watch a short video from the runners here:
