Blind boy Ted, 11, runs marathon for charity

He was inspired by 100-year-old Captain Tom Moore.

An 11-year-old boy has run one mile a day for 26 days to raise money for charity, BBC News reports.

Ted Hardstaff, from Nottinghamshire in the UK, has Stickler syndrome, which caused his retinas to detach resulting in blindness at the age of two.

He was inspired by Captain Tom Moore, who raised more than £32 million in the run-up to his 100th birthday by walking in his garden.

Ted’s efforts raised more than £16,000 for the charity Living Paintings, which produces books for blind people with 3-D images.
