Story

Thanks for visiting our JustGiving page! Never heard of SpecialEffect? Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKLNrCivOzw


In a sentence: "SpecialEffect enable severely disabled people to use computers in any way possible – using whichever part(s) of their body that work best - by adapting technology to their individual needs."

We met the incredible, awe-inspiring people at SpecialEffect in 2012 and, after witnessing their fantastic work, instantly signed up to run with them in the British London 10K.

Hilarity ensues - http://bit.ly/se10k2014

In an attempt to top the ridiculousness of past years' fancy dress efforts (above) this year Firefly Studios are running the 10k as characters from The Legend of Zelda! Tom, Andreas, Anthony and Nick plan to complete the run in record time on 9th July 2017.

We feel strongly about helping raise money for SpecialEffect, a truly amazing charity whose work hugely benefits rehabilitation, mental wellbeing and self-esteem. Through the use of innovative tools such as heavily customised controllers and eye-tracking software, the charity works to broaden the accessibility and inclusiveness of gaming beyond completely able-bodied individuals.

To find out more about SpecialEffect and see just how much of a difference SpecialEffect can make to the quality of life of people they work with please visit their website:

Any donation large or small is hugely appreciated. We are essentially embarrassing ourselves for your entertainment and the greater good.

A HUGE thanks (in advance) from Nick, Tom, Anthony and
Andreas!
