Steve Rowhan is a long running member of the Adult Dyslexia support group and in acknowledgement of the work that we do, he has offered to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon on our behalf.
Steve has struggled with dyslexia his whole life and manages his own building firm Rowhan’s Decorating. A few years ago he started to attend the Adult Dyslexia Support Group and felt that it helped him a great deal.
The race takes place on 13th October, and the course consists of some of the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.
About Your Donations, Where & How They are used

Anyone is welcome to come to the support group meetings. However, it is mainly in place for those with Dyslexia, to offer support, guidance and information.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Technically the support group is free, however we ask members to contribute towards expenses, such as the venue. We offer a £15 membership for the year, which covers this cost, in addition to other bonuses. Further details of this membership can be found here.
what happens at these meetings?
The Adult Dyslexia Support Group offers a safe environment for people to engage with other with Dyslexia. This helps give people an insight into what it is like to live with Dyslexia, how it can affect your day-to-day life, and what some people have done to overcome these challenges.
How Else can i help?
Of course any donations are always welcome, however attending meetings and becoming part of the community is just as valuable. In addition spreading awareness of what we do really helps our exposure, and in turn helping us to support individuals with Dyslexia!
