"The reason I am hoping to raise £5,000 through running these marathons is to enable our disability youngsters to have the best possible experience with our charity.

"At this current time, families of the disabled children pay a small fee for the sessions and it would be a dream of mine to give the families of those youngsters at least ten weeks' worth of free sessions.

"The sessions alone give each young person an unbelievable amount of self-confidence and overwhelming happiness.

"Just seeing that smile on their faces alone, I know that this is one of the most beneficial things I could do to make this dream come true for the children and their families.

"I want them to have access to the best facilities and equipment Shrewsbury Town in the Community can offer them through raising my target amount of £5,000."

The charity's main aim for 2016 is to raise £21,000 for 21 years of running as a charity.

This year is Shrewsbury Town in the Community's 21st anniversary as a registered charity, hence why Jade has chosen to run 21 half marathons.

Shrewsbury Town in the Community's education and inclusion manager, Jade Hibbert, is running 21 half marathons to raise £5,000 for the charity's Down's Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy programmes.
