Story

Veronica & Chris Eiffert, Karen & Rick Hamilton, the owners of Circad Design Limited, are walking the length of Hadrian's Wall path, all 84 miles over 7 days, starting on Tuesday 8th August, to raise money for the Brittle Bones Society (BBS).

Veronica & Chris have been in contact with the Brittle Bone Society for over 40 years. Their 3rd child Karli was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) after a fall at the age of 2 breaking her femur, in the years ahead to date Karli has suffered many breaks and long hospital stays, she was always a cheerful child and soon accepted it as her way of life. Karli grew up to have her own family of which her 4th child Delio now 15 was also born with OI. The support from the BBS for Karli and Delio is beyond words, they have always been there for their needs.

The BBS was established in 1968 by the late Dr. Margaret Grant, MBE, who herself had OI
