A business apprentice will be putting her running shoes on for the London Marathon on Sunday to raise money for Get Kids Going.
Emma Stone, 19, of Ivinghoe, wants to raise £2000 for the charity.
Get Kids Going provides disabled children and young people with sport equipment, training, physiotherapy and helps with travel to sporting events.
Emma, a member of Leighton Buzzard Young Farmers Club, said: “I wanted to raise money for young people to get them involved in sport and allow them to have the opportunity that some take for granted.
“Being part of young farmers, this was a charity I felt I could relate to.”
The charity gives annual grants to many disabled children to help them buy equipment, a sports wheelchair costs over £3000 and a new frame costs £900.
Through a bingo night and donations she has raised £1700.
