My story

[p][br][/p][p]Imagine not being able to read or write. Imagine growing up in a world where letters and numbers scare you, where you’re unable to express yourself freely and where opportunities disappear by minute as you struggle to understand the world around you and are unable to communicate properly. To most of us this is unimaginable. My childhood was surrounded by books and creative writing, yet my grandfather was illiterate.[/p][p]I am so grateful for my upbringing and for the opportunity to give back to others. I will be running the [b]2019 London Landmarks Half Marathon[/b] for [b]The Children’s Literacy Charity[/b] and fundraising for disadvantaged children and young people who have not be as fortunate as me. [/p][p]Literacy is an essential aspect of our everyday lives, it’s so naturally embedded in our activities, we don’t even stop to think what a true gift we’ve been given. Literacy means freedom. It is also the key to education, and as Nelson Mandela said education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world. This is why I have decided to help The Children’s Literacy Charity and believe strongly in supporting this organisation.[/p][p]Any contribution is greatly appreciated – thank you all![/p][p]Specjalne podzi?kowania za wsparcie dla najlepszych na ?wiecie rodzicow, siostruni i moich lejdis - biegne dla Was kochani! :)[/p]
