Rachel’s 3-year-old daughter Scarlett has aniridia. Together they did a sponsored walk at Tiverton Canal Basins in Devon on 3 March, joined by family and friends.
Despite the rain, the walk was a great success, and they raised a fantastic £1198 for Aniridia Network!
I enjoyed doing it and the awareness raised. I had half the town talking about aniridia & vision impairment who had never heard of it.
Scarlett enjoyed it despite the wet & windy weather. She jumped in every muddy puddle going. She was drenched and we were all very muddy!
And I’m pleased with the amount from the 3 weeks of fundraising. Thanks for all who helped and joined in.
Scarlett also painted some colourful aniridia rocks for people to find during the walk, as a way of saying thank you to everyone who supported her.
Many thanks to both of them for completing the challenge and raising so much money for the Aniridia Network. It’s very much appreciated!
