Story

I’ll be running the Great North Run in September to help raise money to this amazing charity 🏃‍♀️Group B Strep Support (GBSS)

This charity means a lot to us as a family. We almost lost our little boy at just a few weeks old to Strep B Sepsis. At least-two babies a day develop a group B Strep infection -one baby a week dies from their GBS infection, and-one baby a week survives with long-term disabilities – physical, mental or both.. If you can donate anything at all to this charity I would hugely appreciate it. If we can help prevent even one family going through what we did I’m happy 🤍

Thankyou - please share x
