£1,020raised of £750 target by 58 supporters

    Funded on Sunday, 17th September 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    On Sunday 10th September 2017 I will be putting on my trainers and taking on all 13.1 miles of the Great North Run in an attempt to raise funds for LittleLegsCoady.

    LittleLegsCoady is a fundraising group set up by friends and family of the Coady family for twins Lennon and Layla Coady. Lennon and Layla were born 12 weeks prematurely in July 2014. As a result of their early birth both suffered brain haemorrhages which led to them both being diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Layla also has a rare chromosomal abnormality which causes her to be impaired in all areas of her development.

    The Coady family are raising funds for an SDR (selective dorsal rhizomy) operation for Lennon which would aim to remove the spasticity in his legs with a view to his mobility dramatically increasing and him leading a pain free life. This operation and years of physiotherapy afterwards is in excess of £70,000 and is not funded by the NHS. The Coady family are also hopeful that one day Layla may walk unaided and are seeking physiotherapy and alternative therapies not funded by the NHS in order to allow her to stand the best opportunity to reach this goal.

      Hi everyone! Just completed my last run before the big event! 5 miles in the rain - very refreshing!! Just wanted to say a huge thank-you again to you all for all of your support and good wishes! The total sponsorship is coming in at nearly £900 which is more than I could have ever hoped for and will make a huge difference to Lennon and Layla. You are all amazing! ❤️❤️❤️

      Hi everyone! Just wanted to say a massive thank you for your support so far, I really appreciate it! The twins are doing really well. They turned 3 in July and a few days later Layla took her first unaided steps! This is actally amazing and she is getting stronger all the time. This is is no small part due to the treatment that you guys have helped to fund. Similarly Lennon is continue to improve with his strength and mobility due to the physiotherapy etc funded by you, this means his operation is more likely to be a success.Thanks guy❤️
