A DAD will take part in this year's London Marathon to raise money for a charity battling a condition that affects him and his 10-year-old son.

Keven Wallace, from Bromley, will run the marathon next month to raise money for Fight for Sight, a glaucoma research charity.

Both he and his son Harry suffer from the eye condition which causes damage to the optic nerve and can bring sight loss.

Mr Wallace will join 22 other

marathon runners who have pledged to raise £1,500 to help Fight for Sight prevent and treat eye conditions like glaucoma.

He said: "A marathon is a massive challenge but I know all my training and pain on the day will be worth it if I can help researchers find a treatment for glaucoma."
