Team story

[p]Thank you for sponsoring Rachel and Claire in this huge challenge both will find it a challenge for different reasons! Claire has Usher syndrome which means she is hearing impaired and slowly going blind. At 37 years old she has little vision left other than some central vision. She relies on hearing aids and a white cane to move around safely. For mental health reasons claire started running on a treadmill ( she clings on for dear life and has had several near misses with coming off). Rachel has enjoyed outdoor running for several years and as one of Claire’s best friends wanted to try guiding her on an out door run. After lots of encouragement ( and nagging from Rachel) She agreed to try! The first run was a mile in which Rachel didn’t even break a sweat and Claire thought she’d never breathe properly again! We’ve had several incidents with signs, low branches, cows, dogs and lots more. Which has meant cuts and bruises for claire whoops! But as time has gone by we’ve gotten more confident and better.... So we’ve decided to take on the London marathon next year in aid of ISight Cornwall who are a wonderful charity that have supported claire in the past. They make a huge difference to many with eyesight issues and can be a huge support to them. The marathon will be a huge challenge for us both....Claire with her sight and hearing issues, Rachel guiding and concentrating for the both of them among thousands of people ( she’s definitely got the hardest job) plus the actual running for 26 miles gulp! Any donations would be massively appreciated for this amazing charity that’s very close to our hearts thank you x[/p]
