Thanks for taking the time to visit The Run Squad Just Giving page in support of local children's charity Whoopsadaisy.
Whoopsadaisy aims to develop the independence, confidence and self-esteem of children with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy. We are the only charity in East Sussex offering Conductive Education - a system of learning which, building upon children’s existing abilities and skills, helps prepare them for tackling the challenges of everyday life more independently.
The Run Squad is a 200+ strong, free local running club with community at the heart of everything we do.
Yes, we run but over the last four years we have also learnt we are nearly as good at raising money for charity as we are at running.
In 2015 by chance we came across a lovely local charity, whoopsadaisy that was and still is very much in need of help. Both financially and also to raise it's profile within our community.
We believe in fate and whoopsadaisy struck the heart strings of myself and my husband Nick and we just had to turn our attention to HELP this marvellous, small, local charity that does such good for those children and families less fortunate than our own.
During 2015, 2016 and now 2017 The Run Squad have and will run many many races, had several memorable parties and ran more races and raised a staggering £27,000 SO FAR for our much loved Whoopsadaisy.
NOW for 2017 we have pushed that fundraising limit to £45, 000 so during this year we will raise and additional £18,000 to reach that target. How will we do this? I've no idea quite yet, but TRUST ME, we WILL do it!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read our story.
