Were there is a will there is a way

 So as most of you all know I’m not some big hot shot company or event planner that can whip together a 10 000 man run through London in the next few months, but don’t worry I have found a way to make sure we do it.

One of my clients is putting together a charity walk, you can chose between a 6 or 15 mile walk and it’s all for a good cause!

We are going to raise money for research into Birdshot Chorioretinopathy, a rare, auto-immune, blinding disease that is treated with toxic medications to try and preserve sight, but leaves patients with severe side effects.  We are planning to set up a biobank to hold samples from all Birdshotters so that research can be undertaken to prevent the next generation being blinded, or at least find medications that are less toxic and do not destroy their quality of life.

Rea Mattocks has set up a charity, BUS – the Birdshot Uveitis Society  and they have partnered with Fight For Sight, the leading charity that funds research into eye diseases, and all money from this walk will go specifically to Birdshot and the biobank.  

We need £140,000 and this is the start of their fund raising journey.

This should be great fun, a chance to make some new friends and finish with drinks/fun somewhere in the West End – and of course raise money for Charity at the same time.

To enter, we need to pay a £25 registration fee and then commit to raising a minimum of £150 through sponsorship.

Please let me know if you are interested and ill send you more details!

This should be loads of fun and a start to the many fun events I would like to be a part of!
