Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit the OddSquad JustGiving page.

On Sunday 13th October 2019 The Odd Squad and friends will be completing The London Royal Parks Half Marathon, a real challenge for us eeek! 13.1 miles! 

Please, please help us reach our target and make a difference to so many lives.  

We would like to raise a minimum of £8,000 as a team. The Odd Squad and friends comprise of Steph, Peter, Tony, Sam, Angie, Mina, Sheree, Minaxi , Sarah, Emma and Sati. Angela, Sandra and Arlene.

After last years successful charity fundraising for breast and prostate cancer, which saw our Steph’s husband, Peter, trek the Oman mountains, the Oddsquad are at it again and raising money for another great cause. 

Sickle cell anemia is a crippling generic blood condition that affects over 15,000 people in the UK alone. People with sickle cell suffer from painful crisis when the blood becomes sticky and unable to pass around the body. They are at increased risk for stroke or early death and is the highest risk for those aged between 2 and 16.   

Jacob is Sheree's 12 year old son. A boy with the biggest smile. Over the years we have watched him going in and out of hospital in excruciating pain. Jacob will now continue to have blood transfusions every 3weeks for the rest of his life in order to stay well.

Please see Jacob’s story here: https://youtu.be/F5u5OQUMSsA 

Please help us help others like Jacob get the support they need by donating. The money raised will help The Sickle Cell Society provide much needed help for those with the condition. 

Many thanks, The OddSquad & friends x
