Hi All,

Many thanks for taking the time to look at my crowdfunding page. I am going to be running the Leicester half marathon in October 2018 which is a first for me but it has always been on my bucket list, so where better than my home town! I am already nervous just thinking of the concept of 'running' 13 miles but it is for a worthy cause.

Mason Smith is an 11 year old boy who suffers with CVD (colour vision deficiency) which affects 1 in 12 males. He is unable to fully distinguish red, green and blue light.

I am looking to raise enough money to be able to buy him his very own specialist enchroma glasses which will enable him to see the world as we do. We take simple things for granted in our everyday life and I couldn't think of anything better than for Mason to be able to see what 'real life' looks like.

Mason is such an amazing young boy who is funny, kind and caring who will do anything for anyone. So please help me to raise as much money as we can in order to change a young person's life.

I really appreciate those that have donated no matter how big or small.

Wish me Luck! :)
