Breaking my comfort zone, my personal best (and possibly my ankle) to raise funds for Doncaster Deaf Trust
In October 2018 I will be running the Worksop Half Marathon, and will also find out if I have been accepted to run the London Marathon 2019. I say this so blasé, completely ignoring the terrified feeling that bubbles up when I think about either event. It is only this year that I have discovered the joy of running, for both body and mind, and I will be running the half marathon with my unofficial coach and good friend Lindsey. As I am a beginner, the thought of both the half and the full marathon are pretty terrifying, but I like a challenge!
The charity I’m running for is one very close to my heart, as I work as a Speech and Language Therapist for them and am so proud to be a part of such a fantastic trust. ‘Doncaster Deaf Trust’ not only provides specialist education and care for children and young people with hearing loss, but for those with a variety of other communication difficulties including Autism (those who know me will realise how important this is to me), learning disabilities, Down Syndrome, Stuttering, Selective Mutism, and an ongoing list of other difficulties.
See their website here to find out more https://www.deaf-trust.co.uk/
I have chosen to raise money to support the Trust, because I see first-hand every day the wonderful work that is done with all of our students, and how they improve not just in communication but in confidence and emotional well-being, and learn to become active and engaging members of society. The money raised will go towards funding various ongoing projects to continue to enhance the lives and learning of our brilliant students.
If you can spare anything, either to support the Trust or to get the chance to laugh at me trying to achieve something that feels pretty much impossible right now, I would be very grateful.
Thank you! x
