We are thrilled and so incredibly proud to share with you all that our very own selfless, brave, and inspiring superhero AaronMan has won the Good Morning Britain Young Fundraiser Of The Year Award; at this years Pride of Britain Awards.
We will be updating our website and social media pages over this weekend and into next week with a full reaction from Aaron, on how he feels about winning the award, his hopes for ROHHAD research and how the night went.
Aaron has asked us to share a few words with you all that he wanted to say at the awards, however due to severe social anxiety and how debilitating ROHHAD is, he was unable to say all that he wanted too. He did manage to collect the award and dedicate his award to all of his special friends with ROHHAD and for him that was the most important thing, he was determined to do this despite how poorly his ROHHAD makes him feel.
He also wants you all to know he had an incredible time, really enjoyed the night and that he was so well cared for and looked after by all of the team at Pride of Britain. He said to say you need to watch the show to see why the night and all the other winners were incredible!
“ Thank you so much to Pride of Britain and to everybody who voted for me to win this Award. I would like to accept the award and dedicate it too all of the ROHHAD Children. This is for you! Your my reason for wanting to find a cure I know how hard and painful this is and I want to help make you better.
Thank you so much to IronMan and to everyone who did my muddy puddle challenge and to all the people who support the ROHHAD Association charity. It’s because of you that we can begin Medical Research now.
I know we need to raise a lot more money if we are going to find a cure and I promise I will try my best to keep fighting and raising funds I’ll keep thinking of ideas to help.
If anyone here wants to help you can still do my #GoMadJumpForROHHAD “ muddy puddle” challenge it’s not too late. Plus there’s plenty of rain just now so lots of muddy puddles !!”
