Marathon challenge for man who overcame brain injury

Nathan Laing had to learn to walk again following his injury.

The 29-year-old from South Wales plans to run the London Marathon in April to raise money for Headway, the brain injury charity which supported him in his rehabilitation. Nathan spent more than 10 weeks in hospital after being attacked at a Cyprus nightclub. After being discharged from hospital he spent five more months undergoing intense rehabilitation including speech and language therapy. Despite having to learn to walk unaided again, Mr Laing ran the Cardiff half marathon in October 2012, raising £2,450 but now wants to complete a full marathon. He hopes to raise more than £3,000.
