The Two Castle Run is a 10km route of death which we're preparing to run/jog/skip/walk for the charity Baby LifeLine. We run from Warwick Castle (the one we love) to Kenilworth Castle (the one we destroyed).
Baby Lifeline is my chosen charity as i know the Ledger family very well and have witnessed the great work this charity does. Judy Ledger is an inspirational and powerful woman who, after suffering the personal loss of three premature babies, founded this charity in the early 80's. Without this charity, many of our friends, family and colleagues wouldn't have made it through the first few days of their life and wouldn't be the wonderful people we know today. She has changed lives of so many and she'll never truly know just how far those ripples spread.
Now more then ever with impending cuts on the NHS, support for this charity is needed! With your help of even just a couple of pounds we can make the journey for mothers and their babies a safer process.
" It is a unique national charity supporting the care of pregnant women and new born babies all over the UK and worldwide.
From the foundation of Baby Lifeline in 1981 over £9 million has been raised which has helped to purchase vital equipment for maternity and special care baby units. It is an unfortunate fact that even with the advances in medical care and science today, more than 8,500 babies still die at or around the time of birth.
So there is a lot more work to be done" www.babylifeline.org
