I'm fundraising for Sands, (Stillbirth and neonatal death charity).
Joshua Decker was born asleep a day before he was due. That was seven years ago this July and I really want to do something for him. Thanks to the work of Sands there is support for bereaved parents, midwifes and research into preventative care. In Josh's memory I want to contribute to the work that they do. To help research reduce deaths but when nature decides otherwise I want every parent to have the help and support they need; to have their child's hand and footprints; to know they are not alone.
All monies raised will be split 50/50 between Sands Nationally and Sands Gwynedd, who are local to me. They support the midwifery unit at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor Hospital where Josh was born as well as the Welsh Air Ambulance.
So with this in mind, one sunny day in June, I'm going along with my good friend Bex Bodde to paddle board from Abersoch for 2-3 miles, then road bike 55 miles to the foot of Cadair Idris, hike to the mountain's summit and back, then road bike the 58 miles home.
If we can do that, raise a little money, raise a little awareness, then for me something wonderful will have come from his memory.
