A WOMAN with cerebral palsy who became an internet sensation after footage of her boxing on her knees went viral has completed her next major personal challenge.

Kate Farley, 29, from Bournemouth, walked the final mile of the Simplyhealth Great South Run which was held in Portsmouth last weekend.

The keen boxer, who is better known online as the Girl Boxer with CP, regularly trains on her knees and one day hopes to make disabled boxing a Paralympic sport.

She had never walked the distance before and prepared for the challenge by training on a treadmill.

Kate joined the run on Eastney Esplanade in Southsea at mile nine of the 10-mile event which saw 20,000 people take part.

She said: “I decided to do this because I’m determined to strengthen my legs, along with proving to myself that despite tiring easily through the effort and control it takes to walk, I want to achieve this milestone, hopefully inspiring others along the way.”

Speaking before the event, she said: “This is a completely different challenge for me as I box on my knees, but I hope to enjoy it just as much as when I’m boxing.

“I’m looking forward to taking part amongst everybody else and soaking up the atmosphere. But most of all I am looking forward to proving to myself that I can do something when I put my mind to it, despite having physical restrictions.”

The fashion journalist embarked on the challenge to raise money for Superpeople, a charity she co-founded with close friends Natalie Betts, 28, Hannah White, 24, and Jake Atkins, 29.

The friends set up the charity to showcase how disabled and non-disabled people can work together and create social change.

They produce video CVs for those who find it hard to gain employment and also create films highlighting accessible clubs and groups that disabled or non-disabled people attend.
