Battleborn Fitness NI

In April 2023, Jennie decided to run in Battleborn’s Fitness NI relay teams in aid of XLH UK at the Belfast Marathon. Jennie was diagnosed with XLH aged 10 and never thought running was something she’d be able to do. However, under the guidance of their coach Jonathan Birch, she worked extremely hard to train, mentioning her two sons – who both have XLH – as her inspiration.
We were thrilled that Jennie & family along with Jonathan could attend our Family Day in Bristol in May. They not only talked about training preparations for the Marathon, but we could thank them in person for their massive achievement of raising over £10,000 for XLH UK.
