Liz and Emily Arnold

Last month Liz Arnold and her daughter Emily took on a challenge for RP Fighting Blindness in Oman at the Al Mouj Muscat Marathon Festival.

Eight year old Emily has RP, and this summer was registered sight impaired, which inspired her and her mum to fundraising for RP Fighting Blindness and take on this challenge together.

The Al Mouj Muscat Marathon is a two day festival in Oman’s vibrant capital. The first day consists of the 1km kids run which Emily took part in and a 5K charity fun run. On the second day there’s a marathon, marathon relay, half marathon and 10km race. Liz took on the half marathon at the festival, no doubt with Emily cheering her on.

Together, they raised awareness for the charity as well as an incredible amount of money. To date they have raised £1,764.96!!
