[p]Thank you for visiting the [span=color: #00ccff;][b][lt]span style="color: #000000;"[gt]Team Finlay[/span][/b] [lt]/span[gt]fundraising page. [/p][p]I really hope you will be able to support us and help raise money for the great charity [b][span=color: #3366ff;]RP Fighting Blindness[/span][/b]. [/p][p][span=color: #000000;][b]To everyone who has donanted to this wondeful charity, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH... its AMAZING how much we have raised!!! [/b][/span][/p][p]We should be able to make a really significant contribution to the gene therapy research!! I am so excited that we have managed to rasie so much! [lt]br /[gt]Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.[/p][p]So what is [b]Team Finlay[/b] all about? [/p][p]I'm Finlay, and I have been managing a team of runners who took part in [b]London 10k [/b]on[b] May 27th. [/b]I wanted to take part in the race myself, but I was not allowed to because you have to be 16 years old to enter and I am only 10. So instead I thought I would get a team together to take part in the race and raise money for retinitis pigmentosa (RP). The team consists of family friends, parents of my friends and my Dad.[/p][p]And what a fantastic day we had at the Bupa London 10k - all of The Team Finlay runners successfully completed the 10k and I got to meet Mo Farah, which was so cool. [b]Well done June, Helen, Kate, Karen, Jo, Natalie, Julia, Mags, Colin, Jonathan, Andy, Chris, Matt, Trevor, Jason, Medwyn and Dad! [/b][/p][p]A couple of Team Finlay members have also taken part in other events.[/p][p][b]Heather Wood[/b] - successfully completed the [b]Richmond Half Marathon[/b] on May 5th in 2 hours.[b] Well done Heather!  [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Stephen Ross[/b] - successfully completed the [b]Mallorca 70.3[/b] Half Ironman on May 11th. He completed the 1.2 mile swim,56 mile cycle, 13.1 run in just over 6 hours. [b]Well done Stephen![/b][/p][p][b]Rachel Waller[/b] - who couldn't make the London 10k, has just completed three 5k races over the 3 weekends.[b] Well done Rachel! [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/b]Last year I was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa. I started having difficulty seeing in the dark and after tests at the Moorfields Eye Hospital I was diagnosed with RP.[/p][p]Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited disease of the eye. Over time the light sensitive cells of the retina cease to function and die away. It is a progressive and incurable disease that leads to a steady loss of vision and blindness.[/p][p]I wanted to help raise money for [b][span=color: #3366ff;]RP Fighting Blindness[/span][/b] because they are doing great work to help people with RP. They are helping to:[lt]br /[gt]- raise money to fund cutting edge clinical research into finding a[lt]br /[gt]  treatment or cure for the condition[lt]br /[gt]- support people with RP and their families to live with the condition.[/p][p][span=color: #3366ff;][b]RP Fighting Blindness[/b] [/span]are currently funding some important clinical research at the Moorfields Eye Hospital, where they are conducting a gene therapy trial. In the trial healthy retinal cells are being injected into the eyes of RP patients to see if the progression of the disease can be slowed or even reversed. This kind of pioneering work requires quite a lot of funding over a number of years and is what [b]Team Finlay[/b] is looking to raise money for.[/p][p][b][span=color: #3366ff;]RP Fighting Blindness[/span][/b] and the Moorfields Eye Hospital are doing a great job for sufferers of RP. Through this and other pioneering work there is a growing optimism around the condition today; optimism that did not exist 5 years ago; optimism that a scientist working on one of the cutting edge research programmes may be close to a breakthrough - a breakthrough that will help to retain or regain sight and change the lives of RP sufferers forever. [/p][p]It would be brilliant if you can support our team in raising money for this great charity. [/p][p]Thank you so much.[/p][p][b]Finlay [/b]   [/p]
