9 Year Old living with CP walks 10K for the NHS

Inspired by captain Tom Moore’s achievement, a nine-year-old girl from Kingsbury, North West London has walked 10k to raise money for her NHS heroes.

Ava Brosnan was born with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy and had a life-changing SDR operation three years ago to help her walk unaided.

Ava’s mother Mary Brosnan said, “I suppose she saw him (Captain Tom Moore) with the frame and thought, ‘I can do a bit of this’.

“She’s very determined like that when she puts her mind to something.

“Ava had an operation three years ago now and since then she’s had physio every day at school but she walks with a walker and can walk a bit by herself. I think with determination as she gets older, because she’s nine now, her walking just seems to improve all the time.”

Ava began her challenge on Monday and completed her challenge yesterday, Sunday.

Although the original target was to raise £200, she has already raised £2,700+ for NHS charities.

“We were blown away".
