On 7th September 2012 I was lucky enough to go to the Olympic Stadium and spend a scorching hot day in the Olympic Park. I'd been gripped by the Olympics but the Paralympics really was the main event for me. Paralympic athletics just blew me away (read more about that on my blog here). 

Ten months on, I can't wait to go back and see the re-developed Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. But more importantly, I want to do this anniversary run for a charity that helps people with sensory impairment to do sports and other activities - that's why I've chosen RLSB and their Great Greenwich Give campaign. 

Why RLSB?

RLSB exists to stop childhood blindness becoming a lifelong disability. Their amazing work includes:

 helping young people cope with being blind and live beyond blindness through an expert blend of education, sport, creative and developmental services, delivered in local communities in London and the South East

 pioneering projects like the Conversational Internet, a smart solution enabling visually-impaired (VI) people to interact with information on the internet benefitting VI people world over

• providing tailored learning and development at a residential college in Kent (where the likes of Darren Leach, paralympian swimmer, studied), and – in 2013 – expanding services to support VI people to live life without limits in their own communities across London... 

RLSB's Great Greenwich Give campaign

RLSB aims to raise an ambitious £24k in 24 hours on 24th July, to continue expanding services for blind people age 0 to 90 in the Greenwich borough area. Find out more here
