Liz Estall and Laura Brudenell - Great North Run

Sunday, September 11, 2016 - 21:15
We are running this year's Great North Run (Half marathon) in aid of CMV Action. There have been many morning runs (after the school bus drop off) and alarmingly early weekend stumbles to prepare us for this challenge. It is also Liz's birthday treat to herself! 
This is a charity which is close to Liz and her family's heart, with Harry being born profoundly deaf due to CMV twelve years ago. For Laura, he is simply the best dance coach her daughter Amy could wish for!
We hope to raise money to allow the charity to support other affected families and to continue raising awareness.  
Thank you for your donation. It is completely appreciated.
Liz is a trustee of CMV Action. Her main responsibility, amongst others, is receiving your phone calls and emails and directing them to the right support volunteer who can help with your queries and concerns, if she can't herself.
Have you used this service? Has CMV Action helped you?
Maybe you can spare a few pennies and donate to Liz and help her along the half marathon.
