Teresa & Vaughan Kay, along with their friends Thomas Thorpe & Vicky Grimmer, have challenged themselves to a summer of fundraising, by taking part in 4 big cycling events. And half of all the money raised will go to the Aniridia Network.
They’re doing it for their daughter Rhiannon. She has aniridia, nystagmus and cataracts, and is a “happy, smiley, chatty little girl”. She also loves her regular music sessions, where she has made many friends who are also visually impaired.
Teresa & Vaughan attended our conference last year, where they met others with aniridia for the very first time and enjoyed the various speeches. We also helped them compile a “Pupil Passport”, to help teachers and other care-givers understand Rhiannon’s condition and support needs.
So we are very grateful they have been inspired to fundraise for us this year. They will be taking part in the following cycling events:
- 5th May 2019 – Tour De Broads Spring, 100 miles
- 7th July 2019 – Norwich Cycle Swarm, 70 miles
- 18th August 2019 – Tour De Broads Summer, 100 miles
- 5-6 October 2019 – Dusk til Dawn 12 hour Mountain Bike Night Race
Please support them if you can. We wish them all the very best of luck!
