So since February this year I have been in training for the Great North Run. This is one of my milestones and boy has it come round fast. After getting out of breath running up and down the stairs to running a fairly consistent 5K plus a day I have a come a long way.
This is a great achievement personally but today I want to talk about what I’m running for.
Its not Coeliac. Its not Diabetes, that’s next years charity drive. When I started running my son didn’t have diagnosed Diabetes.
Last year my brother and his girlfriend ran the great north run for a charity close to my brothers girlfriends heart, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. Her Grandads life has been changed for the better thanks to the charity.
Deaf from working in a shipyard for many years a specially trained dog Charlie has been assigned to her Grandad Bill. Charlie helps Bill react to many of the noises we take for granted, telephones, door knocks, fire alarms.
My own Nana is deaf and since the charity work from last years run we have begun the process to help her as well.
Hearing Dogs for the Deaf help thousands every of people every year. But they cant do it without funding.
So, while I donate my sweat, and tears to every step, every mile I ask anyone who can to donate a little to our cause.
Please, any little amount helps.
