When i was 10 years of age i was diagnosed with dyspraxia. Dyspraxia is a condition that can severely affect and hinder someone's coordination. For me, it affected my co-ordination and my balance so i can’t swim, ride a bike or catch a ball. I had extra support in my lessons at school and college. I also had someone come to my house and give me exercises to do and hekp me with my balance.
When i started school i got bullied for having a Learning Difficulty and for having extra help but i didn’t let it affect my life.
Despite the effects Dyspraxia , I am quite fit and healthy and i have decided to run the London Marathon and maybe the Manchester Marathon next year to help others affected
I want to help raise money for other people affected by Dyspraxia, as well as raise awareness of the condition.
