My friend's wonderful mum was diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia in 2018. Her resilience and courage has been humbling to see, particularly considering the daily challenges that aphasia brings to her life and she remains an inspiration for her family, friends, colleagues and the children that she teaches.

Say Aphasia are one of the charities who have been integral in providing support to her during an ongoing period of adjustment.

It's been a long time since I've run anything close to this distance and I have a fraught history with the seagull population in Brighton, so I'm hoping to (eventually!) cross the finish line in celebration of this wonderful woman and charity and hopefully without the additional load of seagull poo upon me.

Thank you so much for supporting me and Say Aphasia.
