Taryn Taylor and Michael Wevill from Wolverhampton will be putting their fitness to the test to support young people in Wolverhampton by taking part in the Birmingham International Marathon and Birmingham Half Marathon.
Michael Wevill hopes to raise £430 to help The Way Wolverhampton Youth Zone engage more young people with additional needs in their sensory room. Michael said:
“I’ve decided to run the Birmingham Half Marathon on 15th October in aid of the Sensory Room at The Way Wolverhampton Youth Zone. I’m not much a runner but will do my very best.
I wanted to run for The Way because my son Aaron loves it. He has additional needs and he can take part in loads of sporting activities and express his creative side there. My friend Taryn Taylor has also agreed to raise money too but she’s running the full Marathon – 26.2 miles!

The Way Wolverhampton Youth Zone, based in the heart of Wolverhampton on School Street, is a state of the art facility for young people aged 8-19 (and up to 25 with a disability). Jess Parker, Inclusion Co-Ordinator said:
“At The Way we offer all young people, regardless of ability, the opportunity to access a range of activities like trampolining, karaoke, arts and crafts, cooking, gaming and much more. We’re delighted that Michael and Taryn have chosen to run for us. We wish them the best of luck and we’ll be cheering them both along on the day.”
