The Hampshire teacher who came back from the dead!
When Luke Wood ran the Great South Run 5k on Saturday, he wasn't taking the easy option. In 2010, Luke was taken seriously ill. Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a rare neurological condition, completely paralysed Luke and put him in intensive care for three months. He was cared for at both the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield and the Wessex Neurological Centre, and Luke vowed to one day run the London Marathon to raise money for research into GBS and the units that had looked after him. Since then, progressing from a wheelchair to a gutter frame, zimmer frame, crutches, a walking stick and shoe-splints, this remains Luke's goal. The Great South Run 5k was in Luke's words "the next step in the journey". Well done Luke - next step taken, in just under 55 minutes - a remarkable achievement!

Thank you Luke and Good Luck with your continued recovery.
