Mark Pollock | An Inspirational Story
In order for Mark to be able to undertake an aggressive rehabilitation programme involving a spinal care injury centre called ‘Project Walk’, the Mark Pollock Trust was set up to raise money to cover the cost of Project Walk, as well as the conventional rehabilitation costs associated with paralysis. Mark has also recently become one of the first people in the world to trial robotic legs. Mark recently had the honour of carrying the Olympic Flame ahead of the London 2012 Olympics.
