On Saturday 29 August, the University’s own Dominic Holder, Student Administration Manager, will walk around Highfields Park Lake for 12 hours to raise money for the Nystagmus Network, a charity that deals with support and research into the incurable eye condition Nystagmus.
Far from a ‘walk in the park’, the challenge will see Dominic walking solo around the lake non-stop from 7am to 7pm, with friends and family joining him for some of the stretch in support.
