Lucy has been working with Charlie, a long-time UpsideDowns member for four years now. She has decided to run the Auckland half marathon this year to raise money for UpsideDowns who supported Charlie from the time he was only 1 until he was 15 years old.

UpsideDowns provides essential speech and language therapy for over 200 Kiwi kids like Charlie who have Down syndrome. This crucial early intervention gives kids with Down syndrome their best chance to learn to speak, read, and write, and to live full, independent, and healthy lives.

Lucy is looking forward to embracing this challenge to help other awesome kids like Charlie realise their full potential.
