I am going to be cycling 135km and nearly 15000 feet of climbing for sponsor a sibling this is the reason why....
To be told your child is dying is incomprehensible to the majority of us.
Now imagine that you are a child and you are told that your brother or sister is dying. When you are at an age when the world has everything to offer, you are told that your beloved sibling will never grow up.
Overnight your world has crashed around you and your childhood is put on hold.
Everyday you wake up with the fear that today is the day that your sibling will die.
Most adults would struggle to deal with this level of pressure can you imagine if you were 8 and it was your sister.
These children sacrifice so much on a daily basis, with relatively little support as the focus is on the dying child.
Sponsor a Sibling celebrates these young heros and gives them an opportunity to return to the safety of childhood for a few days.
They provides short breaks at the seaside so they can step away from the stress, to make a sand castle, run along the beach care free, play with other kids, eat an ice cream and paddle in the sea; to be a child again
