The race was long and hard (56 minutes 31 seconds) but it was all worth it! Thank you all for your support and sponsorships. Especially I want to thank from the bottom of my heart Georgios and Stefan. They got up really early on a Sunday morning, showed up and cheered me up for that long race...and of course my better half, Isabell, for always being there.
Sponsor me and make a difference
As some of you will know, losing a baby in pregnancy can be a really unhappy and frightening experience.The Miscarriage Association helps by providing information and support when it’s most needed and I want to help them continue doing that for others in this situation.
Income from event sponsorship makes up more than a quarter of The M.A.’s £200,000 annual budget, so every penny of your sponsorship will really make a difference. What’s more, if you are a UK taxpayer and Gift Aid whatever you give, you’re adding another 28% to the charity without it costing you a thing.
Take a look at the figures and see what your money can do:
£5 pays for sending out a pack of 5 information leaflets on miscarriage facts and feelings
£17 pays for helpline support and a leaflet pack for one person
£20 means staff can send leaflet packs to four people
£36 will staff the helpline for an hour (responding to 2 to 4 requests for help)
£50 pays for one hour’s outreach costs, telling 10 nurses, midwives or doctors about The M.A.
£100 will enable The M.A. to train a new support volunteer
£250 pays for a training session for GPs or hospital doctors
£500 means they can send leaflet packs to 100 people
£1,000 will cover the cost of researching, writing and producing a new information leaflet
