Tobias had planned a 1-kilometer (0.6-mile) walk sponsored at a local park last month, but was unable to proceed due to coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
“Then I heard Captain Tom and I thought why don’t I use my walker to try to complete the marathon by walking down the street every day and walking,” he said in a video in front of the marathon that it would be the “Genoramus Challenge.”
At the start of the lockdown, Tobias could walk a maximum of 50 meters (164 feet) a day, but he came close to finishing his challenge – which took him 70 days – according to the PA Media News Agency – he walked up to 750 meters (half a mile) a day.
He told Sky News, “I can’t believe I finished a marathon, it’s just great.
He said: “Every detail of it is absolutely great esome
“I like it when my neighbors clap and cheer for me. I’m getting stronger and stronger every day. It’s such a great feeling.”
So far, Tobias has raised £ 81,600 ($ 100,700) for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Pace School, a school that helps children and adults with nervous conditions, including Tobias.
Tobia’s mother, Ruth Garbat, said they continued to walk and set a goal of reaching 50 kilometers (31 miles), PA Media reported.
“I’m very happy that he finished his marathon. He did really well. He tried his best. He really achieved a huge goal,” he said, according to PA.
“I’m bursting with pride for my little boy. He’s just great.”
