Brain injury lawyer to run the London Marathon in aid of the Queen Elizabeth Foundation
A Bath lawyer specialising in brain injury claims has set himself a goal of raising £1,750 for The Queen Elizabeth Foundation, a leading charity for brain injured people, by completing the London Marathon in April 2016.
Rob Beazley, who works as a paralegal in Brain Injury unit of Withy King’s Personal Injury team in Bath, was inspired to run the marathon for The Queen Elizabeth Foundation (QEF) when he saw a client of the team’s admitted to the QEF Banstead for residential rehabilitation for six months. The difference this made to the client’s life, skills and independence left Rob hugely impressed.
Rob said, “Working in the Brain Injury unit, I am in constant contact with people who have suffered traumatic brain injury. I was amazed at the level of care and professionalism provided by all of the team at QEF. I am excited to raise money for this great charity, who do invaluable work for people with acquired and traumatic brain injury.”
Rob started running in 2013 when he was convinced by friends to take part in the Bristol Half Marathon. He successfully completed this and got seriously bitten by the ‘running bug’ in the process. Since then, Rob has completed 22 half marathons, 15 10k races and two full marathons. 2014/2015 saw him undertake a 25 race challenge for charity raising invaluable funds to help better people’s lives.
