I have been training rigorously for a local 5K. I am running this race for all of you and your children as well. Please support me by sponsoring me in this tremendous endeavor.
It is approximately 36 blocks so I was hoping that my supporters will sponsor me per block. For example, .25 per block would be $9.00. $1.00 per block is $36.00 and so forth. Any amount will be greatly appreciated to raise funds for Dyspraxia USA so I can continue to offer support to you and be an advocate for your amazing children. Cheers!

Dyspraxia is a neurological disorder throughout the brain that results in life-long impaired motor, memory, judgment, processing, and other cognitive skills. Dyspraxia also impacts the immune and central nervous systems. Each dyspraxic person has different abilities and weaknesses as dyspraxia often comes with a variety of comorbidities. The most common of these is Developmental Co-ordiantion Disorder (also known as DCD), a motor-planning-based disorder that impacts fine and gross motor development. For insurance reasons, the World Health Organization code for DCD and dyspraxia together is F82 and the DSM code for DCD alone is 315.4.
In her book, I Believe in You: A Mother and Daughter's Special Journey, Michele Gianetti writes about her special needs daughter Elizabeth. The book describes their mother-daughter odyssey dealing with Elizabeth's dyspraxia and sensory processing disorder.
“I was having a hard time at school, in terms of being crap at everything, with no discernible talent.” Radcliffe also suffers from dyspraxia, a developmental disorder affecting motor skills, and he still has trouble tying his shoes. “I sometimes think, why, oh why, has Velcro not taken off?” He says.
