Hyde Park run raises funds for Connect

17 September 2007

Over forty women took part in the Hydro Active Women's Challenge on 16th September to raise funds for Connect.

The 5k run took place in London's Hyde Park, Liverpool and Birmingham and Connect supporters and trustees raised over £6000 to help people living with aphasia. A big thank you to all people with aphasia, relatives, friends, staff, volunteers and trustees who took part.

Nathalie Hardy, a Speech and Language therapist from Homerton Hospital, took part in the race. She said 'I have got so much from Connect training and sent many clients to Connect who I know have really benefited - I am happy now to be giving something back'.
