Guelph Community Christian School (GCCS) parent, George Brattan, will  be running 110 km on May 9th to raise awareness for The Arrowsmith Program.

Although Brattan’s son, Kai, is not an Arrowsmith student, the program is in its 5th year of implementation at the school he attends (GCCS).

Brattan says that inspiration to run came from a close family friend, who felt hopeful for the first time that “his daughter wouldn’t spend her life in struggle” after attending an Arrowsmith information event at GCCS.

The Arrowsmith program is a cognitive program for children with learning disabilities. The methodology it uses is founded on  neuroscience research and over 30 years of experience, demonstrating how specific cognitive exercises can help children strengthen the weak cognitive capacities that underlie their learning dysfunctions.
