Edward’s half marathon fundraiser

“Sabrina is an amazing girl with a genuinely contagious smile, and a very trendy pair of glasses! Sabrina’s condition will never stop her from doing the things she loves, but your donation could go towards something life changing for Sabrina, and put an even bigger smile on her face.”

Edward completed the marathon in 2 hours and 59 seconds, raising £625 (plus £107.50 Gift Aid) for the Aniridia Network, for which we are very grateful. And you can still donate on his JustGiving page.

Thank you to Edward for taking on the challenge for us. It really helps us put on events that bring together scientists seeking better treatments for children like Sabrina.
