Ben's 100km for Thinking of Oscar

I am running (and probably walking) 100 kilometres for Thinking of Oscar because I want children in hospital to have the best.

Thinking of Oscar

We fund projects and innovation to improve and progress child health

Charity Registration No. 1160405

Story

This is a charity close to my heart. Our family mirrors David and Hannah's. Our daughters were best buddies until the age of two. David and I were captain and vice captain of a brilliant cricket team. Hannah and Hannah (they have the same middle name too!) were just four weeks apart through their second pregnancies. When we moved to Swaziland we were sorry not to meet Oscar who was born 2 weeks after we left. We never dreamed we would be flying home for his memorial service. Nobody deserves to go through what they have been through and though we felt their loss terribly we know it is merely a tiny fraction of their reality. 

Recently when Ted was in hospital we know that we were lucky, but it was nonetheless quite harrowing for a short time. David and Hannah's desire to improve the lives of children in hospital is one I completely agree with and hope that by fundraising for Thinking of Oscar I can help this to spread.

I'm aiming to do the South Coast Challenge, 100km from Eastbourne to Arundel in around 13 hours. I'm hoping the August temperatures don't soar!
