Story

I have started this page as a further tribute to my beautiful son, Noah Martin Thomas, who was born 31st March 2012 at 7.29am weighing 6lbs 6.5oz. Sadly our little boy was in such a deep sleep he never woke up.

After 40 weeks and 4 days of preparing for our bundle of joy, during a text book pregnancy and labour, we then had to face going home without our precious boy. 

We are extremely proud of Noah and love him dearly. He will always be part of Team Thomas.

We met Russell and Susie Black through Farnborough Sands last year, just a few weeks after they lost their daughter, Isabelle during labour. Their friendship over this last year has been invaluable and we hope it continues into the future.

I will be running the Reading Half Marathon in memory of both Noah and Isabelle. Having run it previously, I wanted to make it a bigger challenge so will be wearing a pregnancy suit (boobs and bump). The bump will have the combined birth weights of Noah (6lbs 6.5oz) and Isabelle (9lbs 2oz)..15lbs 8.5oz.

Too many babies die needlessly. I hope you will sponsor me to raise funds for a charity that is very close to my heart and a charity that will provide funds to research why this happens and how to prevent it and provides support for bereaved parents.
