We reported Ismail’s story ahead of the race, detailing how with the help of family, friends and medical professionals in Batley, Cleckheaton and Dewsbury, the latter including friends The Jacuzzi Crew, has built up to him walking the 10k event, continuing rehabilitation from an arteriovenous malformation on the brain, a very rare and life-threatening condition in a young man, and inpiring a lot of people in the process.
Ismail, 33, of Batley, still has paralysis on his left side but relished the challenge.
It is the latest step in his progress and Ismail hopes it will be an inspiration - he has received much praise on social media.
He said: “It has inspired a lot of people and my neices and nephews have mentioned that the headteacher at their school did an assembly at school on me.”
