Story

I'm running the Great South Run 17th October 2021 in memory of Mia. Why you ask? Because on 30th January 2021 our lives changed forever when Mia was killed in a road traffic.

Mia was a real go-getter, she loved a challenge, took part in sports, encouraged and loved all those around her even those that she didn't know.

Mia played as a goal keeper for Horsham Hockey Club. She gave her all and always had a smile on her face what ever the weather or score. She would always be there with an encouraging word on and off the sports field.

Mia was also a member of Horsham Triathlon Club. She was best known for running round the track and talking throughout.

Mia had also been part of Atlantis Swimming Club for a number of years and Sparrows Football Club when she was younger.

Mia loved sport but it was expensive and sometimes we couldn't afford to buy the equipment. We were fortunate enough to be able to borrow kit and then buy it when we could afford it. Not every child or young person is as lucky as Mia was. They aren't able to borrow equipment, or save up for it so that's where my running the Great South Run comes into it (at last you say!).

We as a family are setting up a charity in Mia's name. The purpose of the charity is to raise money to help children and young people access sport. It could be to help pay for football boots, swimming floats, wet suits, hockey goal keeper kits - whatever the sporting need we want to be able to help.

Access to sport helps children and young people thrive, it gives them confidence and helps their mood. Anyone that knew Mia, or met her, knew that she was blessed with a happiness that radiated from her. Her happiness was infectious. We want to help other children and young people thrive so please sponsor me.
