    Story

    As Royal Air Force servicemen and also having a passion for rugby, we naturally share a camaraderie both on and off the field. So when 11 of us from RAF Odiham Eagles RFC decided that we would like to partake in the Reading Half Marathon in March 2019, it gave us the opportunity to help raise money for one of our teammates and his family as well as for our rugby club.

    At just a few months old, our teammate’s son, Enzo was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Enzo, who is now almost 6 years old, struggles to hold his head up without support, sit up by himself, roll, crawl and even stand. He is unable to eat by himself and has to rely on being fed via a tube and has not yet developed much speech.

    The damage on Enzo's brain means he is unable to process the signals that his brain is sending to his body, hence his lack of mobility. Stem cell treatment is a way of repairing and replacing these damaged cells and would allow his parents to work with him to help strengthen his muscles and encourage his brain to co-ordinate with the rest of his body.

    In the long run we hope that the treatment will offer Enzo a better quality of life and the chance to become independent.

    Whilst trying to raise money for Enzo, we are also trying to raise money for our rugby club too. Given the nature of our careers, we’ve had very few opportunities over the past few rugby seasons to come together as a whole squad to reflect on our achievements and develop our personal and professional relationships with one another.

    Using a fraction of the money raised, we’re hoping to finish this coming season with the chance to participate in a rugby tournament, giving us the opportunity to develop as a team and hopefully celebrate a successful season.

      Another week down and a lot of generous donations have been made, so a massive thank you from the whole team! The past week has gone very well with regards to training. Some team members have added cycling to their training to improve fitness, travelling up to 40km a day whilst other are continuing to get a lot of miles under their feet. Please keep the donations coming in and keep sharing our page. Thank you.

      Several of our team members have officially started their training for the Reading Half Marathon. One of our members, who was injured at the beginning of the year, was able to complete his first run this weekend following his recovery. Although it’s several months away yet, we’re all committed to raising money and achieve what we have set out to accomplish. We’re hoping to give you weekly updates on our progress and how everyone is getting on.
