Story

For the third time I am tackling the Ultra Challenge that is hosted on the Isle of Wight. 106km of coastal paths round the island.
With my cousin alongside to complete what we started 2 years ago, we have tackled the first 54km and on May 6th 2018 we'll return to complete the final 52km to finally navigate our way round the whole island.
This time I am doing it to support local charity Miller's Stars ✨

Miller's stars is a charity set up by friends of mine after tragically losing their son, full term at 37 weeks. They set up the charity to help families who have been through tragedies like themselves. This is their story.

Miller’s Stars is the legacy of a beautiful little boy called Miller who was born sleeping at 37 weeks in January 2016. This left two heartbroken parents who decided they needed to make sure their baby left his mark on the world. They decided to start raising money to help purchase memorial items for parents who had lost their babies due to stillbirth or neonatal death. The pride they felt in being able to call themselves Miller’s Mummy and Daddy pushed them forward and helped the charity grown and change.

They have now diversified and provide memory boxes to hospitals, or individual items depending on what that hospital requires to ensure each and every angel parent can take away beautiful treasured items of their perfect baby. In their boxes, they have put together items they feel are important and can be kept forever by Angel parents who suffer as they have. They truly know just how important these boxes are and how the boxes will provide some comfort to the parents, for them to turn too whenever they need or want too. ​

Miller’s Mummy and Daddy are always looking to provide other services and items as Miller’s Stars gains momentum and continue to be successful.

By raising money for this wonderful charity I hope to help make that possible.

    After completing the Moonwalk in 2014 and coming away from it feeling really disheartened and a huge anti climax I found the Ultra Challenge series. In 2015 I completed the IOW 54km alone and also the L2C first half 50km as a trek master. In 2016 I was back to the IOW once again.
