London Marathon 2018 for Corpal - Supporting those with Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum and Aicardi Syndrome because One of my twins has an Absent Corpus Callosum
Corpal supports those affected by Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum which means that the major pathway across the two hempisheres of the brain is damaged or missing. Corpal is a Not for Profit group and is run by parents, and carers of children and Adults with ACC or Aicardi Syndrome.
Charity Registration No. 1086019
I ran the Silverstone Half Marathon in 2017 and wanted to continue. Since I was little I dreamt of running the London Marathon and in 2018 I’ll be hoping to complete that!!!
I need 400 pound in sponsorship for my charity to run this event
I chose this charity as one of my twin boys Stanley currently has an Absent Corpus Callosum which is a rare neurological condition in which the Corpus Callosum, the major “pathway“ for information which links the two hemispheres of the brain, fails to develop fully. The condition is usually diagnosed by CT (Computer Tomographic) or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan.
The effects of the condition are variable; ranging from normal development (where the condition may be undetected or be revealed incidentally), through mild developmental delay to severe learning difficulties, epilepsy, visual impairment and delayed motor development. There may be other brain malformations present, for example microcephaly (small brain) or hydrocephalus (obstruction of the flow of fluid in the head).
