Calling all budding fundraisers – dyspraxia or coordination issues are no obstacle, this event can work for you!
Eleanor, Jo and Alex make up part of the Dyspraxia Foundation Hitchin Team who provide the administration for the charity. We have been inspired by our wonderful supporters to get involved by taking part in the Parallel London event held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 3rd September.
Last year our charity faced a financial crisis and although we have recovered thanks to the generosity of our supporters, as with all charities we continue to struggle to meet the increasing demands made on our services. So we have decided to get out from behind our desks and raise funds for the charity we work for and care about.
Parallel London is the first all-inclusive event with a 10k, 5k, 1k or 100m Fun Run or the Super Sensory 1k. There is also a free family festival for all to attend. All events are open to all ages and all abilities with no cut-off times – start together, finish whenever!
Our team, #dyspraxiaHQ, will be joined by Eleanor’s husband Tony and Alex’s 13 year old daughter Kate.
Please register your place on the Parallel London Website then let us know you’ve registered by emailing us at email@example.com. We can send you instructions on how to set up your JustGiving page and a Dyspraxia Foundation T-Shirt or running vest to proudly wear on the day!
