Weʼve raised £1,495 to Support Aiden Thomas and Thomas Reddington
- Funded on Friday, 30th September 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Incentive QAS ‘Quads’ will be tackling this years Rough Runner 5K obstacle race on Clapham Common on the 17th September 2016. Two teams of four, made up of a mixture of abilities and job roles will be racing to complete the course in the fastest time.
The reason we have all signed up to endure this gruelling test of strength and stamina is to raise funds for two exceptionally brave and determined boys with Cerebral Palsy, Aiden Thomas and Thomas Reddington.
There are many that choose not to embark on events such as Rough Runner. Aiden and Thomas don’t have that choice, which is why we are running for them. Please help us help them.
Aiden was born ten weeks prematurely along with his twin brother, Owen on 1 January 2010. Both boys spent 8 weeks in neonatal intensive and special care before being allowed home.
At a routine yearly check up we were told by his paediatrician that Aiden had Cerebral Palsy and that he would be a wheelchair user. Aiden was diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia which means that his brain was sending signals to the muscles in his legs and right arm and causing them to be stiff and stopped him using them properly.
Following an operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) undertaken in St Louis Missouri in 2012 it was predicted that with intense physiotherapy, Aiden would become an independent walker in all environments.
Thomas is 7 and he has Spastic Quadriplegia, which is a form of Cerebral Palsy that affects both his upper and lower limbs.
Thomas can’t stand or walk, he has a manual wheelchair, which he is super fast in and is continually improving his mobility through it’s use.
Thomas and Aiden require continued support through fundraising to allow them to continue their progress and all funds raised through this campaign will be split equally between these two fantastically brave young boys.
