On Sunday 29th April we will be running our first (and possibly last!) marathon. We are doing it to raise money for Microtia UK, a fantastic charity that supports children born with Microtia like Frieda.
Microtia is a rare congenital condition which results in under developed or missing ears. It can occur in one or both sides.
Most children with Microtia will have some degree of hearing loss on the affected side. This is because the middle ear, which contains the eardrum and tiny ear bones, is affected as well as the outer ear. In some children, the ear canal is blocked or absent, so sound waves cannot pass through the ear in the normal way.
The funds that this wonderful charity receive will help towards the following aims of the charity:
- Developing research in the field of Microtia
- Community development
- Education and Publications
Please donate whatever you can to this fantastic charity that is a massive support for people born with Microtia and their families.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity.
Thank you again
