Great Edinburgh Run Invitation

Hi there
I wonder if you could help me? I work with a small charity called the
Child Brain Injury Trust, and we have been given 5 places for the
Edinburgh Bupa 10K on 4th May. We're desperately looking for keen
runners who might take on this challenge.

What we do
We work with children who have had an acquired brain injury, as a
result of trauma to the head and illness (such as encephalitis,
meningitis and brain tumours for example). We support families who
are coping with the huge changes brain injury brings. For the child
it may mean physical disability, problems with memory and learning,
and profound psychological and social effects. For the family, the
changes include financial strain and problems claiming benefits,
problem accessing the right support for the child at school,
difficulties for siblings (who often become young carers) and much
more.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
