Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit Liam's JustGiving page.

Liam's Teacher, Peter, says:

We are so proud of Liam and what he is achieving with his running. Liam is a 19 year old young Deaf Autistic man with Learning Difficulties. Last year his class began visiting Woodbank Athletics Stadium and Liam amazed everyone with how well he ran. Liam clearly loves to run so we make sure he has plenty of opportunities to do this in his education plan. We now run and train daily before school and running has become an important part of Liam's life. Since running regularly Liam's confidence and self esteem levels have shot up and this has helped improve other aspects of Liam's life, particularly his communication and independence. We're all looking forward to the race and Liam crossing the finish line is going to be such a proud moment for him. He's worked so hard for this!

Please support Liam in this race as much as you can. The Seashell Trust is a fantastic place for students like Liam to learn and your donation will help Liam, and students like him, fulfil their potential and achieve amazing things.
