Description

From Light to Dark is the heart-warming and truly inspirational story of 'Blind' Dave Heeley. From a sighted 1,500-metre town champion at age 11, to a blind endurance athlete and charity fundraiser, he's undertaken John O'Groats to Land's End with a difference, the 2015 Marathon des Sables and his greatest achievement, the ultimate endurance challenge of seven marathons, in seven consecutive days, on seven different continents.
