My Story

On 22nd May 2017, Martin Hibbert's life changed forever. Martin was the closest survivor of the Manchester Arena bombing which tragically took the lives of 22 people. A bolt went straight through him, severing his spinal cord, leaving him paralysed below the waist.

Martin is taking on the incredible challenge of raising £1million for Spinal Injuries Association, the organisation that have supported him in his recovery and gave him the hope, confidence and practical skills to start again.

Martin, supported by a team of people that have helped to save and rebuild his life, will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in September 2021. 

Inspired by his story and this incredible challenge, we have decided to set our own challenge of raising money to help him towards his incredible goal. We will be #EVERYDAYMOUNTAINEERS, the team behind the team, supporting Martin by taking on our own challenges, raising money, and inspiring others to do the same.

My small part in supporting this amazing cause is to take on the Goggins Challenge: the 4x4x48. I will be running 4 miles, every 4 hours for a 48 hour period. I start at 4pm on Thursday 27 May 2021 and (hopefully) finish by running my 12th 4 miler at 12pm on Saturday 29 May 2021.

The physical challenge is going to be tough as it's almost 2 marathons in 2 days...but the real challenge is going to be the psychological challenge fuelled by the lack of sleep and time to recover.
