Weʼre raising £500 to support 2 charities close to my heart that have helped Jack and Oliver enormously in their treatment, support and much more.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Louise and I will be running the Tour of merseyside between the 1st and 7th July to raise money for 2 charities close to my heart. This is 6 races of 13.1, 5.9, 10, 5, 6 and 12 miles in 6 days. A mix of road and trail running.
We will be running to support Stick n step Who support children with Cerebral Palsy and have helped Jack and Oliver since they were young. Their amazing treatment of Jack especially has helped him to achieve so much more than we expected. From being told he’d struggle to walk properly, swim, eat, speak and much more he was eventually given a large operation when He was 7. With Stick n steps support he can now do all of these things and more As they helped with his recovery and growth. Oliver has Ehlers Danlos syndrome which is also supported by them. They help with his social skills, fine motor skills and strengthening treatments. He has come on so well in the years they have helped him.
The 2nd charity is Cerebral Palsy United FC. This is a brilliant charity which Jack has had the chance to play and train with to allow him to take part in sport and forget his condition. He trains with them in manchester every saturday. This is a wonderful group of people that really do put huge smiles on the childrens faces and bring the best out of them. They arrange fixtures with other CP teams and give the children opportunities they otherwise would not get. From young children to adults they have a great set up.
Both of these charities relay solely on donations to run. Both support a large number of families and to have the chance to pay something back to them and raise these funds will be amazing.
If anyone can spare a few pound to help then please try.
Thank you in advance!!
Ste and Louise.
