Rambling Dad raising money for the Nystagmus Network


August 10th, 2015

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. Called ‘Rambling Dad’, money raised on the walk will go towards providing information, support and advice as well as funding and encouraging research around Nystagmus.

Dominic said: “My 10-year-old son has this condition and has benefitted greatly from this fantastic charity. I would like to raise some money to allow others to continue to have their lives enhanced.”

You can support Dominic’s Rambling Dad walk through his Just Giving page, and can also visit his Facebook group for more background to his story and updates.
