Jeannette Adu-Bobie is long-time friend of 500 miles and a multiple amputee herself. This is how she reported on her fundraising kilometer in September – which raised a huge £5,885.02:

“My prosthetist, John, made me legs for walking and that’s what I did! I walked 500m and 500m more to be the girl that walked 1km during the Two2Go event at Hackney Marshes on September 11th. Two2Go is part of a series of events leading up to the London Olympics. I crossed the finish line in under an hour to receive a medal.”
