Dystonia Awareness Week is fast approaching, it runs from Saturday 4th May to Sunday 12th May. Last year my mum, step dad and I ran a 5k fun run up in London and raised over £700 for the Dystonia Society! However this year we had to rethink how we would raise awareness and funds for The Dystonia Society as now I am in a wheelchair the 5k fun run is out of the question. After a quick search on The Dystonia Society website we decided that we would throw a tea party. There is also a slight competitive aspect to it, as everyone sends in the their tea party photos and The Dystonia Society judge the best.
I am also taking part in the ‘Go Blue Movement’. I am dying a section of my hair blue during awareness week to raise funds and awareness for Dystonia. The Go Blue Movement is an international movement, which started off in America! If you have not heard of it yet then I am sure over the next few days you shall hear more! You can easily take part in it by dying a section of your hair blue! If you do not want to use permanent dye, you can easily use a spray in, wash out dye!
