Grace McGowan prepares for Parallel London fun run

Grace McGowan became paralysed from the chest down following a car accident three years ago.

Since then she has found a love for sport and is getting ready to take part in Parallel London - a fully inclusive fun run for people of all abilities.

Grace admits to feeling nervous about taking on the 1km course but will have her mum and sister alongside her all the way.
