Thank you

Thank you to all our supporters for raising vital funds for our work in the world of tinnitus. Here are some of their stories.

Chris

Chris recently supported us by running the Cardiff Half Marathon on the 7th of October. He wanted to raise funds to help people who suffer from tinnitus, like himself.

Well done to Chris on completing the race in 2hrs 38mins, despite having an injury so close to the event. Chris has already registered for 2019 Cardiff Half Marathon!

Alex

Alex took on the awesome 6 Peak Challenge. He was the first to ever attempt hiking up and paragliding down the infamous National 3 Peaks and the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in under 24 hours.

Huge congratulations to Alex who completed this amazing challenge in 22hrs 40min, smashing his 24 hour target. He raised over £2000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the BTA.

Peter

Peter is challenging himself to swim 100 miles over the year of 2018. He wants to get people talking about tinnitus as well as raising funds for the BTA. Peter's journey with Tinnitus started in May 2015 - you can read his story here:

Keep going Peter...(he's nearly finished his challenge!)

Adam and Louise

Adam and Louise organised a Mad Hatters Tea Party as part of our Tea for Tinnitus fundraiser. They raised an amazing £603.90 at the tea party and were supported by Dragonfly Lifestyle and The Coach public house and restaurant. 

Thank you to Adam and Louise for everything they do to raise money and provide support for people with tinnitus in their local area.

Damian and Ian

As an audiologist, tinnitus is something Damian (on the left) comes across everyday. He felt compelled, along with his friend Ian, to raise money for us by taking on the Virgin Money London Marathon.

Thank you to Damian and Ian for smashing their target and raising over £2,600.

Karen and Ruby

Mother and daughter Karen and Ruby ran the Great Manchester Run 10K to raise money for the BTA. It was Karen's 7th time & Ruby’s 2nd! 

They are raised money in memory of their friend Craig Gill. Craig tragically passed away in November 2016, aged just 44. He had suffered for many years with debilitating tinnitus. 

Huge thanks to Karen and Ruby for supporting us with their running challenges and their other fundraising activities.

Lynne
