Story

Hi, I am George.

I am 10 years old & currently on a 2/3 year waiting list for a Neurodevelopmental Assessment. I want to raise awareness and understanding for Neurodiversity. I am challenging myself to run 26 miles in the month of May - you can follow my journey with the hashtag #roarsomerunnergeorge

My goal is to raise a total of £350 to purchase The Neurodiversity Umbrella Project for my School, Earlsdon Primary. You can find out more about the Umbrella project here…

https://www.adhdfoundation.org.uk/what-we-do/umbrella-project/

Because we are close to my target I have decided to raise my fundraising total to £700, in the hope that I can ‘gift’ the Umbrella project to another Coventry School to help spread neurodiversity awareness in education.

Because we are close to my THIRD target I have decided to raise my fundraising total to £1400… I am going to keep going & keep gifting to as many Schools in Coventry as I can!

The Neurodiversity Umbrella Project is created by The ADHD Foundation & is an uplifting visual representation of all the different minds we have here in the UK.

Every Umbrella Project installation helps to raise awareness and understanding of neurodiversity. Thousands of colourful umbrellas are strung together over public spaces, in schools, and in company buildings around the nation. Each display is designed to represent the one in five of us who have a neurodevelopmental condition, such as ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia or Tourette’s syndrome. These conditions fall under the umbrella term of neurodiversity.

We are changing the perception of neurodiverse/neurodivergent people and celebrating all the many strengths that come from thinking differently.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

    George has had to take a few days off School this week, due to him coming down with a bad cold 😕 This has meant no running, however we did manage to do a mile walk yesterday evening (in the rain). Fingers crossed after one more rest day he will be back to it 🤞🏻🤞🙌🌈🦖 Thank you for all your continued support ☺️
