Story

We met through our love of fitness almost 2 years ago.

Not only have we got fitter and lost a few pounds, we have become the best of friends!

We are taking part in the London Marathon 2024.

Raising money for Whizz Kidz. A charity VERY close to our hearts.

Fran has 2 children, this ginger beauty is Henry, 6 years of age.

He was born at 32 weeks premature, he has a twin brother called Rupert.

Henry was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

Henry can take a few steps in a kaye walker, but a wheelchair will be his chosen mobility for life. We are backing a charity that in the future will hopefully support him with a wheelchair.

Its the amazing charities like Whizz Kidz that give children like Henry the freedom to be a normal dude and do things that wouldnt otherwise be possible.

Over 75,000 young people in the UK need to use a wheelchair to be mobile.

Unfortunately, they cannot access the equipment that meets their needs through local services. We're here for all of them.

Whizz Kidz are the UK’s leading charity supporting young wheelchair users up to 25 years old. They empower young wheelchair users with the equipment, support, and confidence-building experiences they need to take an active role in society. The Whizz Kidz goal is to create a movement for progress towards a more open and accessible world.

We are asking for any donation, big or small, support, share, like, and sending all the positive vibes our way!

Lots of love, Fran & Soph xx
