My story

[p]So, I was honoured to be running the London Marathon for the first time in 2020, and in doing so raising money for DELTA. Being able to support a wonderful local charity will spurred me on through the long (and cold and wet) winter runs. Knowing that funds raised would help families with deaf babies, children and young people, motivated me through the crack of dawn training. Then came Covid-19 and lockdown happened...[/p][p]Thankfully we now have the decision made, and though it's disappointing the main race will not be happening this year, I'm planning to complete the race in April 2022. However, London Marathon are instead organising a Virtual race for 2020, being held on 4th October. Given the reduced level of training I'm looking to complete the Virtual event with a difference - by completing the 26.2 miles by running 3 miles every 3 hours over 24 hours! [/p][p]It's been a difficult time for all, from those on furlough to those working whilst homeschooling, young people missing out on education and friendship, with the mandated use of masks bringing new challenges. I'm raising money for DELTA to help children, young people & their families in this difficult time and through the longer term. Please give generously, every little helps[/p][p]**************************************[/p][p]DELTA is a charity that supports families with deaf babies, children, young people and the practitioners in Health and Education that work with them[/p][p]They want a world in which deaf children are able to realise their full potential within their communities and believe this is best achieved through support to learn to listen and, thereby, acquire spoken language. We believe that the vast majority of deaf children can learn to listen and talk.[/p][p]Formed in 1980 by a group of dedicated Teachers of the deaf who thought deaf children, especially those who have a severe or profound loss, should be able to achieve to their full potential, despite their deafness[/p][p]DELTA’s members are made up of teachers of the deaf, audiologists, parents of deaf children, deaf young people and adults providing support for families and professionals[/p]
