Charlie Ponder, a 26 year old newly qualified teacher, has run 100 miles for charity despite suffering from Wegener's Disease. He was diagnosed with the disease on Valentine's Day 2012 when he was just 23 years old.
Charlie has raised almost £2000 for Vasculitis UK, which supports people suffering from autoimmune diseases including Wegener's. He ran from Great Yarmouth to Huntstanton over the course of 4 days.
He hasn't let the disease reign in his ambition. If anything it has hardened his resolve and determination. Since being diagnosed he has completed a university degree, qualified as a teacher, travelled around the world twice and now run the equivalent of 4 marathons.
