ELLA’S MARATHON EFFORT TO KEEP DAD WALKING
Huge good luck from the whole Caterham School community to Lower Sixth Form pupil Ella who is training to run two half-marathons this month, all to raise funds for her father Andy Patterson, who has the rare genetic disorder hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP). Monies raised will go towards life-changing surgery, which could allow Andy to walk unaided and may stop further deterioration. Currently such surgery is only available in the United States and needs to be performed before Andy’s condition deteriorates further.
To date Ella has raised more than £10,000 via her Just Giving page, but she hopes to raise even more through her half-marathon attempts this month. Ella’s Just Giving page is: https://justgiving.com/crowdfunding/helping-my-dad
