Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On 19th April 2015, I will be running the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon to raise money for Action for Stammering Children (ASC)

ASC commissions the delivery of specialist services that transform the lives of children and young people who stammer. Stammering is a severe communication disability which impairs social, emotional and educational development. Estimates suggest that 5% of children will stammer at some point and approximately 1% continue to stammer into adulthood. Stammering crosses all races, cultures, religions and social groupings, conceals intellectual ability, affects educational choices and achievement, results in impaired communication skills and frequently becomes a focus for teasing and bullying.

In addition to ASC, I am also running the Greater Manchester Marathon to raise money for The British Heart Foundation. To sponsor me to run for them, please visit my other page: www.justgiving.com/rachelsmanchestermarathon1.
