My story

[p]Hola![/p] [p]I'm terrified to say that I’ll be running a half-marathon for Headway East London, a charity I work for based in Hackney that supports survivors of brain injuries. As you probably know, I’m not a runner – I can only do 5km at the moment - so I am not looking forward to this![/p] [p][/p] [p][b]Why am I running?  [/b][/p] [p]I have been lucky enough to spend lots of time working with the Young Person’s Group: younger adults (18 to 30 years old), who had radical changes in their lives – young guys who suffered a road traffic accident, who have been involved in gang violence or who had a brain tumour. They are left with amazing challenges such as change of personality, being wheelchair-bound or having poor short-term memory (sometimes as little as 5 minutes).[/p] [p]Headway East London helps these survivors and their families cope with the practical and emotional consequences of brain injury, through advice and advocacy, therapies, support groups and the Community.[/p] [p][/p] [p]Supporting me to run the half marathon you are helping this amazing charity, and also giving the young guys a good opportunity to have a laugh at my attempts to run three times further than I’ve ever run before![/p] [p]Ta![/p]
