Lin’s Half-Marathon Fundraiser

Welcome to Lin’s fundraising page! Lin Bolton is running the Simply Health Great East Run in Ipswich (Suffolk) on the 16th September 2018. Lin often takes part in 10K runs and loves doing Canicross (running with her dog), but this will be her first ever half marathon.

“For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to do a half-marathon now, in my 50’s!!! I decided I wanted to support Can You Hear Us? C.I.C (CYHU) as I’ve been so touched by the stories of people living with NF2”.

Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) is a rare genetic condition that affects just 1:35,000 of the population. It involves the growth of multiple benign (non-cancerous) tumours throughout the nervous system, most commonly seen in the brain and spine. NF2 often causes hearing loss, balance difficulties, facial weakness and vision issues, among other things.

Due to multiple disabilities and the fact NF2 is so rare, people often feel very alone and socially excluded. Therefore, through its work CYHU aims to reduce the effects of isolation and build resilience by supporting, empowering, and uniting people with NF2.

Any donations to support Lin in her efforts to raise vital funds for CYHU will be truly appreciated.

Note: You do not need a PayPal account to donate through PayPal.
