My story

[p]Hi everyone thanks for visiting my fundraising page.[/p][p]I just want to take the opportunity to thank everybody who has sponsored me on all my crazy walks over the years raising over £12,000 pounds in the process!!! - you are the real heroes and should take all the credit![/p][p]This year i'm raising awareness about Dyspraxia and money for the excellent Dyspraxia foundation as the condition affects several members of our family.[/p][p]We had the pleasure of attending their annual conference in London last year and it was fantastic!![/p][p] There were experts and guest speakers with information and inspiring stories which inspired me to dust down my hiking gear once again!!![/p][p]The foundation gives help and support to people of all ages who live with this complex neurological condition.[/p][p]Getting help and recognition and understanding for this hidden disability is a very stressful and exhausting battle and being able to access the foundation is very important for help and support.[/p][p]The fact it is hidden means it suffers in comparison to more visible disabilities, but affects lives just as much.[/p][p]Here is a snap shot of Dyspraxia and although it doesn't affect intelligence it can affect the following;[/p][p]Planning and organisation[/p][p]Spatial awareness[/p][p]Time keeping[/p][p]Balance[/p][p]Coordination and Movement control (e.g. writing, eating, speech, riding and peddling a cycle, climbing stairs, driving a car)[/p][p]Fine motor skills (e.g. getting dressed, tying shoelaces, buttoning clothing, holding cutlery, using scissors)[/p][p]Anxiety levels and Mental health[/p][p]Social issues and forming relationships[/p][p]Self esteem and many more .......[/p][p]In short Dyspraxia affects everything an individual does, but with the right help and support people can go on to lead very successful lives.[/p][p]So if you have a few pounds to spare you will be helping thousands of people and putting me through hell for the 8th time!!![/p][p]What's not to like ???😁[/p][p]Thank you so much for reading this and your amazing generosity!!! [/p][p] Nick x[/p][p][br][/p]
