Milton Keynes girl, 6, cheered by classmates on first 100m walk

A six-year-old girl with an extremely rare genetic disorder ran 100 m (328 feet) surrounded by supportive classmates.

Bea was born with Marfan’s syndrome, which affects her muscles badly, has had two major heart surgeries, and needs a ventilator 24 hours a day.

Her school near Milton Keynes wore a costume to raise money for a new wheelchair and walker.

Her mother Jennifer Pykett said, “Two weeks ago I think she walked about 10 meters. It’s a wonder she does what she does. We are extraordinarily proud of her.”
