Approximately for five years ago Jansku, with the support of close relatives, got an eye-gaze computer so he could start practicing communicating. Jansku was interested in the computer and slowly but surely started to…

Jansku – erilainen juoksija

Jansku on hyvin vaikeavammainen mies ja siksi kaikki harrastaminen ja kommunikointi on ollut lähes mahdotonta. Noin 5 vuotta sitten Jansku omaisten avulla sai kokeiluun tietokoneen, joka toimii katseella. Jansku oli koneesta kiinnostunut ja pikkuhiljaa alkoi löytää siitä keinon, millä hän sai omia mielipiteitään esille. Aluksi tietysti se oli vaikeaa, koska yli 30 vuotta aina joku…

Vive le parkrun!

Let me tell you a story about a Frenchman in Sweden. (Cue one of my favourite songs, “Englishman in New York” by Sting). I moved to Sweden in the summer of 2008, to be with my then girlfriend, who is now my wife. I don’t think I realised the adventure I was going to embark…

parkrun Sverige i 2018

Vad fort ett år flyger förbi! (Jag tror att vi sa så även förra året…….).   Det känns verkligen svårt att tänka att vi började 2018 utan Malmö Ribersborg och Uppsala parkrun, vilka nu är väletablerade event i parkrun Sverige-familjen.   Båda äger rum på fantastiskt fina banor som verkligen visar upp de två städerna…

(I think we also said this last year!).   It really feels hard to think that we entered 2018 without Malmö Ribersborg and Uppsala parkrun, which are now established events in the parkrun Sweden family.   Both take place on stunning routes which really show off the very best…
