Mark Pollock speakerFour years ago today motivational speaker Mark Pollock, a blind endurance athlete, fell from a second story window. He lay in hospital for nearly 16 months – paralysed, blind and psychologically fragile. But, what a difference 4 years makes… Have a look at this short video (above).

A message from Mark

Here at The Mark Pollock Trust we have evolved from supporting Mark in his time of need to seeking ways to fast-track a cure for paralysis that will benefit him and the millions of paralysed people around the world.

Mark says: “Today it is exactly 4 years since the fall that left me paralysed. Everything is different now. Everything. There is the obvious lack of movement and feeling. And, there are the hidden truths of paralysis – the secondary impact that strips me of my dignity every day. The things that I took for granted four years and one day ago are gone. Yet, four years on I can’t help but feel that life is filled with possibilities. The transition has been made with the support of thousands. With your support. And, now we are looking to the future. Thank-you.”

Spurred on by the support that you bring through donations and entering the Life Style Sports Run in the Dark, Mark and the Trust thank you from the bottom of our hearts. This year’s Life Style Sports Run in the Dark is happening on 12th November and with plans well under-way to make it bigger and better we can continue to explore our mission in the Trust. Early bird is open until 31st August.
