On the 13th of August, me and Laura will be taking part in the 5K Big Fun Run in Liverpool to raise money for Ehlers-Danlos Support UK. This event is held in Sefton Park and can be taken part by anyone from keen runners to people who have never done one before. As they describe on their website, you can run, jog, skip or whatever you like! 

Last year Laura was diagnosed with the hyper-mobility type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). EDS can cause her really bad joint pains which can happen with no real warning and completely affect her whole day. I see what this condition can do to Laura on a daily basis and it can be really hard for her and will sometimes prevent her doing something she wanted to. 

There is not much awareness of this condition I think that it would really benefit from more money and attention being raised about the condition. We are both going to do this fun run to help to raise money and would love if you could help us achieve our target. We have created a Just Giving Page and would really appreciate anything you can give. There is also a text code above if you wanted to donate this way. Thanks in advance if you are able to donate anything!
