Katja Lumezi’s daughter Tina was born with aniridia, and from the moment she was diagnosed they have received “immensely valuable” support from the Aniridia Network and Moorfields Eye Hospital.
To show their gratitude, Katja ran the Hackney Half Marathon on 20th May 2018, raising over £630 for the Aniridia Network! We will also receive over £100 as a result of people claiming Gift Aid at no extra cost to them.
On her JustGiving page after the event, Katja wrote:
“I made it! I finished running my first half marathon yesterday. Thank you so much for supporting us with your generous donations which continue to come. We have raised some good money for Aniridia Network, a charity which continues to support people with visual impairment. Thanks a lot, it all adds up!”
We at the Aniridia Network would also like to thank everyone who donated. And we especially thank Katja for taking part in the event for us, we are very grateful!
