Have you or anyone you know ever wanted to run the London Marathon? Well now’s the chance – well, sort of. The physical event is cancelled for non- Elite participants but as this year is the 40th anniversary of the ‘World’s best marathon’, organisers are offering a virtual race on 4th October. It’s the marathon but with a twist.
Participants will have 24 hours to complete the 26.2 miles in their garden, park, usual running route, etc from 00:00 to 23:59 on Sunday 4 October.
They can run, walk, take breaks and log their race on a new London Marathon app. We can request places in this virtual event for runners to take part and raise funds in this landmark, 40th race.
Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that we would get all the places we request. If you or someone you know is interested, please email email@example.com. All we ask from anyone taking a place is a £20 registration fee and that they raise as much as they can. The registration fee will only be required if a place is confirmed.
We would love to hear your opinions and experiences of attending virtual glaucoma clinics during lockdown. How is the experience different to normal? What is good, bad or just worth commenting on? Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you interested in getting involved in filming discussions? This is for a series of webinars we’re doing, presenting patients’ experiences. You would be paired with someone else who has glaucoma, and have a guided conversation about your experiences of having glaucoma and attending appointments/receiving treatment etc. It would take around 2 hours of your time, and be done via Zoom or other video chat software. If interested or to find out more, contact Joanna Bradley on email@example.com.
We’re also doing work on improving our booklets and other written information to make them easier to read. We need input from people with glaucoma to ensure we’re explaining everything really clearly and simply. To get involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you ever find health information (provided by Glaucoma UK, doctors or anyone else) difficult to read, we especially want to hear from you!
