The March to 90K

We are trying to raise the funds to pay for a child bereavement Support Worker in Leeds for three years.

Story

I have gone a bit mad and have decided to do 5 half and full marathons to raise money for Elliot's Footprint.

I will be doing:

26th February 2017 Harewood Half Marathon 

2nd April 2017 Manchester full marathon  

9th April 2017 Sheffield half marathon 

14th May 2017 Leeds half marathon

8th Oct 2017       Yorkshire full

Please support me in this challenge by giving what you can.

We are working with other organisations in the region to raise the funds to pay for a a Bereavement Support Worker who will reach out and be there for a family when they need them the most. They will be there to help them through the first few days, weeks and months if needed. They will offer tailored support that the family feel they need, whether this is helping them work out what to tell their children, who to contact to arrange a funeral, or to explain the coroners process – they will be there. They will also help to guide them to what ongoing support they may need whether this be meeting other families or one to one counselling. They will follow up with the family in the months and in some cases years ahead – because every family needs something different, just because a year or two has passed, doesn’t make the devastation any easier to deal with.

Join us to raise this money so we can make sure that when the worst thing that can happen to a parent, the sudden death of their child – they are not alone.

Our goal this year is to contribute £30,000.

Join us in raising money to help us #supporteveryfamily through the loss of a child.
If you can raise £500 the support worker can support families for a whole week.

A donation of £1,000 will provide support for two weeks.
Raising £2,000 will pay for the role for one month.
