I became a speech therapist to work with people living with aphasia. Say Aphasia is a charity very close to my heart as I have seen it work to raise awareness about aphasia and support people living with aphasia. By raising money for Say Aphasia, it will help the charity to continue its amazing work and reach more people affected by aphasia.
Andy, Mike, Paul, Emma & Mackayla will be walking non-stop from Trafalgar Square to the QA hospital in Portsmouth. We will be supported along the way by Janet, David & Jen. It is our way of supporting a close friend who has aphasia and saying thanks to the charity for all the help that they offer.
I’m doing a 100km trek in the Jordan desert to raise funds for this wonderful charity that has provided so much support to my husband Michael since his brain haemorrhage.
It is going to be a challenge for me, but that is nothing compared to the challenges that aphasia sufferers deal with every day.
I’m going to be doing the Half-Marathon in two weeks time. I’m definitely going to be slow, but it will be worth it. All sponsorship is greatly appreciated! Colin Lyall
I'm older! I'm fatter! I'm no wiser! I'm running a half marathon again for SayAphasia. Looking forward to returning to my spiritual home and running a long way to raise a few quid for Colin a co and all the wonderful people assosciated with SayAphasia.
I’m running the Brighton half marathon to:1. raise awareness of aphasia 2. fundraise to support people living with aphasia

I know people that suffers with aphasia and I want to help raise money to help support

Say Aphasia is an amazing charity offering support to people with aphasia.
Say Aphasia is a small charity that supports those impacted by Aphasia. It provides, help, support, guidance and companionship both to those with Aphasia, and their families in challenging times. It is an incredibly worthwhile cause and I feel privileged to be joining a relay team to cross the British Channel this June, to help raise both money and awareness for this outstanding cause.
