My story

[p]On Sunday 25th July I am running the London 10k for Cochlear Implanted Childrens Support group, CICS.[/p][p]As many of you know, my brilliant nephew George is a Cochlear Implant user. George is truly amazing and consistently does incredibly well with the issues he has. I’ll be joining his dad, my brother Paul, to drag ourselves round that there London in the sun or rain (can’t decide which I prefer!).[/p][p]As a family with a Cochlear Implant user they were fortunate to find Tricia and CICS and have benefited from their support over the years. This ranges from regular information being shared about equipment which may help, to events where George can meet other young people who are Cochlear Implant users. He is the only one in our family and indeed within his current school, and this will be the same in his next school. As a result it is important for his sense of identity that he gets to regularly spend time with others, who have ‘ears like mine, dad.’ (George’s view from a previous event.)[/p][p]Given the guidance, advice, events and general support over the years that CICS have provided I have decided to run for them by way of a thank you. Like most charities they have been hit hard by COVID, and have not been able to fundraise as usual, yet they have still continued to provide support to George over the last 18 months.[/p][p]So my running this event and hopefully you chucking a couple of quid my way will allow me to say a small thank you to CICS. Also the value of seeing George at an event just smiling and relaxing with other Cochlear Implanted children is priceless.[/p][p]Thank you[/p]
