Connor Lynes raising funds for others, a top man doing fantastic things

My name is Connor in 2015 I suffered 2 major strokes following a rugby league match in Hull.

I wasn’t given much chance of surviving by specialists but in March 2020 it will be five years and I’m still fighting throughout my journey and during my fight I have had some amazing support and have decided to walk to Leeds from Hull to raise funds for 4 charities close to my heart.

This will be a massive ask for me as having a brain injury makes every day tasks hard for me I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), chronic fatigue, and suffer with anxiety and behaviour issues as well as memory problems.

I still have the blood clot and a significant narrowing of my brain stem which causes headaches and dizziness and vacant episodes and I struggle everyday.

My life was turned upside down but with the help of these charities I have pushed forward so want to give a little back.. if anyone wants to run with me you are more than welcome and donations are much appreciated after the success of last year’s challenge I have decided to walk from Hull Royal Infirmary to Leeds Children’s hospital to raise funds for 4 new charities this year I am supporting

Please support if you can all proceeds go directly to the 4 charities

Motor Neurone Disease Association for Rob burrow an inspiration to me as a rugby player I grew up watching who now has motor neurone disease I hope any funds raised will help towards finding a cure for the terrible disease.

STATE OF MIND have been a massive support to me over the past few years after my diagnosis of complex PTSD they have helped so many so I want to give a little back.

LEEDS L52 PAEDIATRIC NEUROSCIENCES was the ward I stayed during my time after my strokes and they do so much for the families on their ward and I would like to help them

MOSE MASOE via Life For A Kid Foundation as Mose is an inspiration to me he suffered a life changing spinal injury playing rugby and is now due to go home where he will need ongoing support for life
