Neurotrauma lawyers raises vital funds through GNR
Hannah Fitzpatrick is running the world’s biggest half marathon to raise money for Headway Darlington & District, a group which helps people living with brain injury and their families to rebuild their lives.
Hannah, an associate in Sintons’ Neurotrauma team, works nationally with people who have sustained serious life-changing injuries, and has a strong track record in fighting on their behalf to secure the best possible outcomes and access to rehabilitation possible for their unique situation.
Now, through taking part in the Great North Run – which this year follows a new route which sees runners cross the Tyne Bridge twice and finish in Newcastle rather than South Shields – Hannah is helping to increase the community provision available for those affected by brain injury.
“Headway plays a hugely valuable role in the recovery of people living with brain injury and is a much-needed resource for so many families,” says Hannah, a committee member of Headway Darlington & District.
“Brain injury can affect people in so many ways, but one of the most common factors we hear time and again is the isolation survivors can experience, and how difficult their families find it to know how to best support them.
“Headway offers a really powerful combination of practical support and social interaction, with the opportunity to meet other individuals and families in the same position proving invaluable to so many people.
“I see this first-hand on a regular basis at Headway Darlington & District, and am keen to do all I can to sustain and build the great work they do. As a charity, they rely wholly on fundraising, and I am keen to do my bit to help the team by taking part in the Great North Run.”
