Take on #challenge15 today!!
15 babies die before, during or shortly after birth every day in the UK. We need your help to save families from this tragedy.
We are rolling out #challenge15 this January - March to raise £15,000. Whether you are a cyclist or runner, jogger or a plodder, you can help us provide the support and services needed for anyone affected by the death of a baby.
But to do that, we really need your help. The type of challenge you choose can be as unique as you are serious or fun, high profile or low key, its up to you! #challenge15 allows you the freedom to take part in your own way and we look forward to seeing a wide variety of different events taking place all over the country.
Sands is asking everyone to get involved to commit to raising £150 so if you ask 10 people to sponsor you just £1 a mile youve already reached your target.
Where does your money go? Here are just some of the ways your donations will help:
£15 could provide a Family Support Pack for bereaved parents in need of information and advice. This could also provide a midwife with the leaflets and resources needed to provide support to bereaved parents
£150 could provide Sands memory boxes to hospitals in need to give to 7 bereaved parents. These memory boxes help parents to create memories and collect keepsakes in a very special way.
So this January dust off your trainers and get your 2019 off to an incredible start. You really can make a difference. Be a #challenge15champion and register your interest today at www.sands.org.uk/challenge15
Thank you for helping to make a real difference.
