The Dyspraxia Foundation is proud to be supporting Safer Internet Day (SID) 2018!
The Internet is a wonderful resource, it contains lots of information that is helping millions of people on a daily basis, but it is often a scary place where misinformation, online chats and discussions can create lots of doubt.
For the final time, you can come join #TeamDyspraxia at the Virgin Westminster 10k on Sunday 15th July 2018.
This is the last year that the Dyspraxia Foundation will be taking part in this event, you are free to enter yourself from 2019 and support the charity that way, but this will be the final year that the charity will be sending down support. Keep an eye open for information on our fully supported race – Parallel London – which will be posted once the details of this years event have been confirmed.
