Fundraising for WellChild
raised of £2,400 target
by 63 supporters
Event: London Marathon 2024, on 21 April 2024
To raise £250,000 that could fund a WellChild Children's nurse or 50 home improvement projects.


WellChild Childrens Nurses provide essential care and practical support to children and young people requiring long-term or complex care. They play a crucial role in enabling children to leave hospital and be cared for at home, reducing the practical, emotional and financial impact for families. WellChild is also committed to funding high quality, innovative projects designed to have a positive impact for seriously ill children both now and in the future. This includes WellChilds Helping Hands programme which continues to go from strength to strength, working with volunteers from companies and organisations across the country to tackle essential projects in the homes of children with serious illness. Those volunteers provide the manpower and enthusiasm for projects such as bedroom and garden makeovers.


My plan is to run at least 1 mile for every £1 donated. So from the April 17th 2023 (when I decided to run the London Marathon), until April 21st 2024 (when I actually run the London Marathon) I am hoping to have run at least 2400 miles. 

Miles run so far: 2823 miles (March 31st 2024).
