Proudly showing her off her medal

Proudly showing her off her medal

We are delighted to let you know that on 12th July Alissa Elsaesser successfully ran the British London 10K in aid of Cerebra.

Alissa was an absolute star on the day and loved the cheers and support from the crowd. She even achieved her ambition of crossing the finishing line ahead of her dad, Alex.

Alissa in action

Alissa was born with Down’s Syndrome but that has never held her back and she is always eager to help those in need. This is one of the reasons that she has decided to take on this challenge; to help children with neurological conditions across the country.

Her fundraising total is steadily climbing and she has now managed to raise well over £3,000! If you would like to donate you can do so by calling 01267 244221 to make a donation over the phone, or through her Just Giving page.

Alissa would like to thank everyone for their support and donations and for their kind messages of encouragement.

Alissa prepares for 10K challenge

Alissa in training!

This year, the London 10K is celebrating its 15th anniversary and for this very special year, we have a very special person to run the race for us!

Alissa Elsaesser, who was born with Down’s Syndrome has never let anything hold her back and is determined to rise to the challenge and make it around entire route.

Alissa is currently in her last year of college where she enjoys many hobbies including singing, cooking and even skiing! As well as having a hectic social life, Alissa also volunteers at Cerebra during the holidays, helping with our two raffles that take place every year.

Running 10k will be a huge challenge for Alissa but she will have the support of her father Alex Elsaesser who will be running the race for the fourth time for Cerebra this year.

“This will be a big challenge for her. She is trying to raise £1,000 for Cerebra and if you are able to sponsor her, it would be a great encouragement for her to keep training,” Alex said.

Alissa has been training hard for the race which takes place in less than a month on 12th July and is confident that she will be able to make it around the gruelling course with moral support from family and friends.

Alissa is very close to her target of £1,000 and is now hoping to far exceed that. We are currently in the middle of a telephone campaign in order to raise money towards her final target and so far our fundraisers have had an incredible £9,698 donated to them from generous members of the public. You can show your support by calling 01267 244221 to make a donation or you can donate through Alissa’s Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/Alissa-Elsaesser/.  Please give generously to help spur this very special lady on!

Alissa Joins Team Cerebra for 10k

Alissa Elsaesser

Alissa Elsaesser

Alissa Elsaesser, who was born with Downs Syndrome, has set herself the challenge of running this year’s London 10k to fundraise for Cerebra.

This will be the fourth year that Cerebra have taken part in the British London 10k race and we have been very fortunate to have many dedicated people taking part in the race on our behalf.

This year is turning out to be no exception and we are very pleased to welcome Alissa Elsaesser to team Cerebra!

Alissa was born with Down’s Syndrome but she has never let anything hold her back and is determined to rise to the challenge and complete the entire route.

Alissa told us a bit more about herself: “This is my last year at College and I am planning to run 10K to raise funds for Cerebra. During the holidays I volunteer at Cerebra, helping with the Raffles. My parents think I am very special. They are right. I like music and singing, cooking and ski twice a month at dry ski slopes. I also am a member of our local Gateway Club and have many friends there. I will need to train a lot to run 10K.”

Running 10k will be a huge challenge for Alissa but she will have the support of her father Alex Elsaesser who will be running the race for the fourth time for Cerebra this year.

“This will be a big challenge for her. She is trying to raise £500 for Cerebra and if you are able to sponsor her, it would be a great encouragement for her to keep training,” Alex said.

You can support Alissa through her Just Giving page. We also still have some places left if you would like to join Alissa and Alex on team Cerebra. Email [email protected] or call 01267 244226 if you are interested in taking part in one of the most iconic races in the country.

London 10k 2015 Challenge

10k team 2014

Are you able to take up the challenge and run 10k for Cerebra this year?

For the fourth year in a row, Cerebra will be taking part in the British 10k London Run on Sunday 12th July.

In previous years, we have been lucky enough to have many brave and willing runners taking part in the race for us and in doing so, lots of money has been raised in order for Cerebra to continue with the work that we do.

Last year’s team did an excellent job with Alex Elsaesser completing the race for the fourth year running with us.

Many personal goals were achieved along the way with another member of the team, Sarah Jones managing to complete her first ever 10k after losing an impressive 6 stone in weight.

We are extremely grateful for everyone who has run for us and hope to make this year another one to remember.

We have an extremely limited number of places for this year but would love for anyone who would be interested in taking up the challenge and taking part in the race to raise money for Cerebra to get in touch.

The race takes its runners around some of the most iconic sights that London has to offer including Big Ben, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace – perfect for keeping even the most amateur runner motivated until they cross the finish line!

We ask that each runner tries to raise a minimum of £500 so that we can really try and make 2015 a year to remember!

If you are interested in taking up the challenge, please get in touch by email on [email protected] or by phone on 01267 244226.

Carmarthen Slimmer’s 10k Challenge

Sarah Jones preparing for 10k race

A Cerebra slimmer has dropped nearly six stone and is getting ready to embark on a gruelling 10K run in aid of children with neurological conditions.

Sarah Marie Jones started her slimming journey last year and in little over 12 months has lost five stone eleven pounds. Encouraged by work colleagues as well as friends in the slimming group she attends, Sarah gradually began to shed the pounds and see the health benefits that come with losing weight.

“At my start weight, I struggled to do the simplest things,” Sarah explained, “I even struggled to get off the sofa and I knew then that I had to do something about it.” As she started to approach a healthier weight, she started to go to the gym to tone and improve her fitness levels and was offered the opportunity of running the British London 10K on July 13th. “At first I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to run but I wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge to prove how far I’ve come,” she continued.

As well running to challenge herself, Sarah is also using the opportunity to raise funds for Cerebra. She is hoping to raise £500 to help improve the lives of families affected by neurological conditions.

You can follow Sarah’s progress and her own frank account of her training through her blog:www.runmyselfskinny.blogspot.co.uk .
