I'm going to complete a 'virtual event' a month for British Tinnitus Association because not enough is understood about tinnitus.

Story

My plan is to run a 'virtual event' each month, starting in March, alongside the two actual events I have planned - both Great Run events: the 10k in Birmingham on 30th April and the Newham 10k in July.



"The word 'tinnitus' comes from the Latin word for 'ringing' and is the perception of sound in the absence of any corresponding external sound."

Tinnitus is something that affected my gran from her late teens until her death at the age of 102. My mom has had it from childhood and so have I, off and on, until around a year ago when it became a permanent fixture in one ear. So far, it hasn't affected my hearing, but mom has lost some hearing in the upper range and my gran was always hard of hearing, and in the end, effectively deaf.

Funding is needed to enable research into what causes it and to try to find a cure. That's where your help comes in! You can donate via this page or via text - TINN68 £3 to 70070 :-) 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
