    Story

    I will be running the Grimsby 10k on the 21st July 2019 and the ABP costal half marathon on 15th September 2019 to raise funds for an amazing support group called KDARs for kids which is a support group for children and families dealing with CKD and other renal issues.

    I have personally had help and support from KDARS for kids when my youngest son was diagnosed with grade 5 Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in his left kidney, he was 4 months old, this was found during my pregnancy at 28 weeks. At 6 months old we found out that he had 9% function in his left kidney and 91% in his right kidney.

    When he was just over a year old on the 16th December 2016 he had his left kidney removed.

    Without the support of KDARs I would have struggled. Even now KDARs are an amazing support network for me. As since my youngest son went through this my oldest son has ben found to have a congenital kidney problem which has caused his right kidney to be a lot smaller than it should be and it is functioning at 21% where his normal left kidney is fuctioning at 79%.

    KDARs continually help and support children and families stuggling with the pressures of having CKD and other renal and kidney problems, they are there 24/7 as someone to talk to and at christmas they spread christmas cheer for these children by sending christmas presents and organising secret santas for the children across the globe.

    The children going through the number of hospital appointments, medical tests, hospital stays and operations constantly have huge smiles and do all this without complaining that they want to give up or that its too hard it has encoraged me to raise this money to help support the families of these amazing children who have CKD or other renal issuses because of the many hospital visits and stays which hit the families hard financially on top of the emotional strain of seeing what our children are going through.

    So please support me in raising these funds Thank you

    I’m a mum of 2 boys both of them have kidney problems. KDARs have been a huge support for me. I took up running in May 2018 to help my stress levels and improve my health. After completing a 5k race I decided to push myself further and support those who have supported me
