2 Wish Upon A Star provides bereavement support for families who have suddenly and traumatically lost a child or young adult aged 25 years and under. When a family loses a child or young adult the effects are devastating for all who knew and loved them. It is important that support is available if and when required.It is important families know that they are not alone and that the feelings they are experiencing are often normal.
I feel incredibly privileged to be running the Virgin London Marathon for such a worthwhile cause. I'm a mother to two lovely boys, a Progress Coach to a wonderful class full of five and six year old's, and as you've probably guessed...a runner. When I heard of '2 Wish', and Rhian and Georgie's story, it moved me to tears and I held my boys that little bit tighter that night. Sadly in 2012 Rhian, the founder of '2 Wish', lost her one year old son and a few days later also her husband. Unimaginable grief.
The work '2 Wish' do and the support they provide during the darkest of times as a parent is nothing short of incredible. Please help me in supporting them and donate whatever you can.
