Destination Florida Children's Charity

We help children with medical conditions to go on amazing trips to Florida

Charity Registration No. 1003674

Story

I have taken on the challenge of running the London Marathon on 23rd April 2017.   This time last year I joined the couch to 5K group with Winston Runners and am still running weekly with them.   Last year I ran 10K and a half marathon to the amazement of myself and others.....and now I take on my greatest challenge and at the same time raise money for some amazing children who face challenges everyday. 

Destination Florida is a small Northern based charity which specialises in bringing a bit of sunshine into the lives of children who are suffering from life threatening or life limiting illnesses.   Every 2 years they take a group of about 75 children to Florida, literally for the holiday of a lifetime. Each trip is meticulously planned and involves taking a large support team consisting of doctors, nurses and other carers.  Whilst they are in Florida the parents and siblings of the children will hopefully be enjoying a week’s respite at home. The benefit of this can never be underestimated.

I am excited about having this opportunity.  I am training hard and am determined to finish......with a little help from my friends and family. xxxx
