Determined Dylan aims to walk half marathon

A young Island boy who's inspired many with his fundraising efforts this year is taking on another mammoth challenge.

Eight-year-old Dylan Walton, who has a rare condition which means he has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, won the hearts of residents this summer after raising over £27,000 for Rebecca House by walking up Snaefell in July.

Now though, he's begun the challenge of walking the equivalent of a half marathon and is covering the 13.1-mile distance by walking around the National Sports Centre in Douglas covering several miles each day.

He began his mission yesterday covering just over two miles of the running track at the facility.

He's aiming to finish on Sunday, October 4 - you'll be able to keep track of Dylan's progress by watching out for social media updates on the Dylan's Day Facebook page.
