Is every day beginning to feel like GROUNDHOG DAY?!
Feel like you need a challenge?
How about running (or walking) the Virtual London Marathon for LOOK!
Taking place on October 3rd, you can run the 26.2 miles from anywhere you choose – this is YOUR RUN! Take part in the London Marathon – Your Way!
This year, our aim is for our amazing runners to each raise enough money to sponsor a Visually Imapired young adult to become a LOOK mentor.
LOOK’s tailored peer-mentoring service connects VI young people with a trained VI mentor to offer advice, support and guidance on subjects such as school, further & Higher Education, careers, opportunities and independent living, based on the mentor’s own experiences.This costs £250 and has a life-changing impact on our mentors, the young mentees that they work with and family members.
“Our daughter says she loves having a mentor, because they are able to empathise with each other over a variety of different topics. The Youth Forums (run by the mentors) have been brilliant for some social interaction during lockdown, as, for many VI children, friendships are a difficult area to sustain at mainstream school and they often feel very isolated.”
