    Charlie’s challenge

    This is Charlie – he is nine years old and is hoping to run a marathon in 5km splits (Park Runs). He would like to use this opportunity to raise money for charity. When asked which charity he would like to support he chose “The Sacha Gauci Remembrance Fund”.

    Sacha was just two years old when he died from an undiagnosed rare, aggressive brain tumour. At the time of Sacha’s death Charlie was 4 years old. They had always known each other, and our families were close. The death of Sacha – an extremely beautiful, smiley little boy affected many families in our community. His parents wanted some good to come from his tragic passing, and so chose to support World Child Cancer in his memory. Over the past 5 years that fund has raised over £46,500 for children with cancer who live in Balantyre, Malawi and do not have access to curative or palliative medication. Sacha is never far from our minds and every time our daughter (just 6 weeks younger than Sacha) learns a new thing, moves classes, makes friends we feel Sacha’s absence – knowing that he would be right there alongside her if he were still with us. Sacha’s parents and their other son have had to battle through a grief that none of us want to experience. They are amazing people, and this support is in part a tribute to them.

    I am not sure why Charlie chose Sacha’s fund as a charity to support, but I am so proud that he did. I would love it if you could support Charlie in his marathon ambition. To make the challenge even more tricky, he wants to beat his personal best time of 26 minutes and 28 seconds. Charlie will run every Saturday (unless he is poorly, or we are away) whether he “feels” like it or not. This is, after all, a test of endurance and determination. He would like to raise £50, but can you imagine the difference even more money would make? The children it would help through World Child Cancer and the seed of inspiration that it would plant in Charlie’s heart to “do more for others”. Please give as little or as much as you are able. Thank you so much.

    We are running the Royal Parks Half Marathon and in doing so we are hoping to raise some money for World Child Cancer (The Sacha Gauci Remembrance Fund). Our friends Vincent and Hannah lost their little boy in December 2012 at the age of two and a half when he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain tumour. Vincent and Hannah went on to set up a remembrance fund in his name to raise money for World Child Cancer who help children suffering from cancer in Malawi. Vikki, Ian (Dodge) and I would like to help.

    · £5 buys nutritional support for 5 children and their families during treatment in Cameroon

    Life is precious, when I heard Sacha's story from my partner who is a close friend of their family, it became very real, very quickly to me having 2 young children of my own. 

    Vincent Gauci has done an incredible job in supporting the charity and when we saw that he was looking for people to support World Child Cancer charity I could not help but get involved. 

    Now, putting my cards on the table. I do have a level of fitness but for those that know me, running 22Km through the middle of London is not my idea of fun!  I much prefer 10K fun runs with lots of mud but it is my opinion that if you are going to raise money for charity you need to go outside your comfort zone.

    However perspective is everything, if you choose to donate this is what you will be providing for a child with cancer: 

    • £5 buys nutritional suppoert of 5 children and their families during treatment in Cameroon
    • £10 pays for a week's worth of pain relief medication for 4 children in Malawi
    • £25 funds accurate diagnosis for 10 children in Bangladesh
    • £50 pays for life-saving chemotherapy for a child in Ghana
    • £150 pays for a play worker in Myanmar for 6 months
    • £500 funds the treatment of a child with Burkitt lymphoma in Malawi

    So there it is, I am going to give it my all. The training has started and and the charity team are very grateful for any donation you choose to give.

    Many thanks and best wishes,

    Matt

    In December 2012 our lovely friends Hannah and Vincent Gauci lost their beautiful boy Sacha to an aggressive brain tumour. He was a gorgeous, smiley, adorable boy and is missed so much. To remember Sacha, Hannah and Vince established a remembrance fund so that his legacy continues to support children with cancer in Africa.

    Many different and amazing projects have been undertaken to raise funds for World Child Cancer in Sacha's memory. My project is to undertake my first triathlon.....a definite challenge for me and my fitness levels! I will be swimming 400m, cycling 20km and running 4.5km in the Terry Wootton Roade Sprint Triathlon on September 27th 2015. Terrifyingly I only have 4 weeks to go.....!

    I would be so grateful for any support and donations - it is an amazing cause and every pound truly makes a difference to children with Cancer in Africa. Thanks in advance! xxx

    I will be under starter’s orders amongst 2,700 athletes on Sunday 14 June at 7:30am in the cold water of Chasewater lake. Attracting huge local support, this inaugural event has attracted high profile names such as Gordon Ramsay, Danny Mills, Jonathan Ross and Charlie Webster to its entry list. It has a 30-strong pro field including Javier Gomez the current ITU World Triathlon Champion.

    The event which takes places through the four districts and boroughs of Cannock Chase, Lichfield, East Staffordshire and will consists of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile cycle and a 13.1 mile run.

    Places for individuals sold out in minutes, but I was really lucky for World Child Cancer to get me a place so I could raise money for them. I have done fundraising events for the charity before and would like to raise as much as possible again for them. We are good friends with Vincent and Hannah Gauci who tragically lost their beautiful two-and-a-half year old son Sacha in December 2012 to an extremely rare and aggressive, undiagnosed brain tumour. The Sacha Gauci Remembrance Fund is there to support World Child Cancer and their efforts in helping children in Africa with Cancer.

    Please make a donation. No amount is too small. Look forward to all your support.

    I finished in 5:14. Not without hiccups!!! Was hoping to go around in under 5 hours however …… 


    My story:


    If I hadn't been doing it for charity I may have registered my first ever DNF (Did Not Finish) on Sunday at the inaugural IM 70.3 in Staffordshire as I had an absolute nightmare start to the race which didn't really improve much throughout the day. 

    After 6 months of preparation this was a major blow as you can imagine!!!


    Alarm was set for 3:45am at our hotel room in Tamworth about 35 mins away from Shugborough much to the kids horror! Plan was to get ready, eat some breakfast and make our way to where the event organisers suggested we turn up to get a free shuttle bus down to the start. These were supposed to be turning up every 5 mins from 4:30am onwards. The buses were to transport us from Shugborough, where the run and finish were, down to Chasewater where the swim and bike start was. This is usually a 30 min journey. 


    Even though we arrived at 5:15am the bus did not get me to the lake until 6:48am. Transition was due to close at 6:50am so I only had a few minutes to ensure my tyre pressure was ok, set up my Garmin and put my nutrition and hydration on the bike. Trying to get my Saltstick on to the bike in a hurry caused me to snap the plastic holder so this wasn't going to come with me as planned and I had to put some salt tablets in my food bag. 


    After transition I had to try and locate Vikki and the kids who had been told to get a separate bus down, with athletes taking priority due to everything running late. I managed to locate them in the crowds and began to get ready for the swim. Vikki was going to take my white bag as Ironman had originally announced they would not transport them back to the finish. This meant she would have to hold it all day until I had finished and needed my clothes back.


    About this time it was announced that the Pros were going to start 10 minutes late and that there was a 10 minute delay. I was quite relaxed at this stage. The weather was nice, I was ready and the family were all together. We made our way over to the swim start. It was about 7:38. As we got there we realised that no one had my white bag and we had left it back on a bench with some other friends. Vikki thought I had it and I thought she had it!!! :-) My friend John who had driven up to support said I had best get going, not to worry and they would go and find the bag. 


    I made my way through a small gated area and noticed there were only swimmers with black caps on. I asked where the 7:40 swim wave was!!! The marshall pointed at the lake. I was only just getting in the water when the swim started. They said there was a 10min delay but then didn't mention they had changed it back to the original start time. There's me strolling along the pontoon looking at 100s of blue caps in the water thinking this don't seem right. As I got in the hooter went!!! This meant not only did I have to swim past lots of slower swimmers I also probably had 150m to swim before the actual start point in the water. I had not even had time to warm up or make sure my wetsuit was on properly.


    Usually when I am in the water I have a mental note of where I am swimming. With the rush I kind of just followed a pack of swimmers. This wasn’t ideal as I was following slower athletes with poor sighting skills. I stopped to take a look to get my bearings. I then got my head down and the swim went without much fuss. It did seem long but that was probably just me not being that settled.


    I exited the water up a concrete ramp with the help of a marshall. Looked at my watch and my swim time was about 3-4mins slower than I had expected. Disappointing but probably not too surprising considering the start that I had. 


    The transition back to the tent was a very long run across gravel, mud, grass and plastic matting. Certainly wasn't pleasurable on the feet. I did get my first shout out from John, Vikki and the kids though which was great to hear. John took a few photos and ran alongside me chatting. Not sure what about???


    I found my blue bag very easily in the tent, having remembered it’s location from the day before when we racked them and begin to get ready for the bike. It was manic in there but I found a quiet spot and started going through my bag while removing my wetsuit, hat and goggles. On goes my helmet, strap done up. I then notice my headband in the bag which I wear under my helmet to stop sweat getting in my eyes while riding. As a contact lens wearer this makes my day much more comfortable. Do I take my helmet off and put it on? I decided against this! I then tried to put one glove on. It seemed a real struggle as my hands were wet so decided not to wear gloves. I put both these items in there for a reason though!!! I threw the glove back in the bag and made my way out of transition and, as instructed, dropped my bag off on my way out. 


    I got half way to my bike on the huge grass field containing thousand of bikes. I hear a marshall tell someone they don't have their race number on. No race number!!!! Epic fail ..... I don't have a race number on. I don't need a warning from the marshall as I noticed myself that I had just totally forgotten to put it on. Don't even recall seeing it in my bag. Obviously pre-occupied with headbands and gloves. This is serious and you can get you DQ (Disqualification) without it being worn!!


    Had to run back in to the changing tent. By this time there was a pile of blue bags 5ft high. Managed to find it after a few minutes of frantic searching. Was lucky it was found at all. Some eagle eyed marshall really came up trumps and saved my day. 


    So I finally get on the bike. We make our way out of Chasewater which involved a series of speed bumps and pot holes on a single track. I wasn't sure if we were allowed to go fast yet or not so took it steady. I didn't want my water bottle falling off the bike. I could see quite a few already scattered along the track!!! 


    The first section of the bike was a long steady climb heading up a big A road. I was settling in ok and heart rate felt well under control. As normal on the bike I usually just stay to the right and continually pass other riders. There was one guy ahead of me, heavily tattooed and he seemed to be riding at a similar speed so I focused on keeping him in my sights. 


    Within the first few miles they took the competitors in to a section of narrow country lanes. I had been up to recce the bike route before and thought this would not be a good idea on race day with 2700 riders coming through it. They are narrow, poor road surfaces and high hedges. Certainly not ideal for racing. 


    This section was not very fluent. Lots of braking and turning. One turn went straight in to a very sharp climb and lots of riders were walking up it. Not due to the incline but they had been caught out on their gearing. Even though I knew about it, my gears didn't seem to like the quick change I had to make while tackling the climb. 


    After about 8 miles, still in the lanes but very nearly out of them, someone knocked me off my bike on a nasty bend following a steep descent. As I was making the left turn another rider came inside and just went straight on heading for the bush. They took me in it with them. I was in a state of shock. It happened so fast I just recall sitting on the floor, half in the bushes but very near the edge of the road. Lots of other cyclists were still coming down the hill right near us. As I sat there, two others riders obviously focusing on us rather than the turn also came off. One of them hit my back with their front wheel. Full force – impact at probably 20mph!!!


    The other riders brushed themselves down and went off. No one seemed too hurt. Strangely no one spoke?? I couldn’t assess my injuries but I had some road rash, cuts and bruises. Worse one coming from the two other guys crashing in to us while we were sat there. My back was sore. However, my main concern was the bike. 


    The front wheel would not spin. Looking at it I initially thought it had buckled. However it was just the front brake that had moved – I managed to get that back in place and the wheel was free again. At this stage I had a bit of a sulk and a melt down. I didn’t know what to do or if I was OK or if the bike was OK. Suppose there was only one way to find out. Get back on ….


    My Front mech (gears) had packed up altogether. I carried on riding in the gear I was in until I got to a faster section of road out of the country lanes. I was in the wrong gear but couldn't change them. Realised I needed to stop again to manually lift the chain. I then noticed I only had about 4 gears to play with for the other 48 miles as the right shifter was limited. I now know that it shattered internally!!!


    The gearing  was generally OK throughout the ride and I was still riding well. I had done enough bike training to stay strong for that sort of distance. I was struggling eating my food on the bike but knew I needed to keep my energy up so forced it down. With about 15 miles to go I went past a friend who was also racing. He started 10 minutes after me and is an exceptional athlete. He went on to finish 2nd in his age group and qualify for the world championships. We kind of stayed together till the end of the bike – but he runs like the wind so was soon off when we got back!!!

    Some hilly sections in last 5 miles through Cannock Chase nearly killed me due to insufficient gears on the bike. This was going to bite me in the bum on the run I could tell!!!!!!


    In transition from bike to run my red bag had been misplaced. It wasn't were I had put it. Luckily someone helped me locate it. My right knee was scabby and stiff and my back was very sore from the impact of that crash. I put my trainers on and grabbed my sun visor and my shot bloks. I asked for some water to wash my knee a bit and made my way out of the tent.


    The run was just horrible. As soon as I started everything started hurting. I hadn’t noticed it so much on the bike. I also had a tight hamstring and my glutes were on fire. I also had quite tingly feet. I think I was happy to be on the run though and see what that had in store for me and within the first few hundreds meters I saw Vikki and the kids and John. It was good to know they were OK as I had not seen them at all on the bike. They had tried to get out to watch but it proved a logistical nightmare with all the road closures etc.


    I did manage to get round the run, it was a three lap loop of approx 4.4miles. The first lap was really hard and there was a nasty hill on it that had me stop at the top and take a loo break. Think I needed this just to settle down as my heart rate had definitely gone too high after the climb. After this I settled down in to my run and decided I had to try and be consistent with my pacing, taking the hill in to account the miles were not going to be equal splits. After the first lap I saw Vikki and the gang again which always perks me up and puts a bit of spring in to my step. They were outside the impressive Shugborough Hall near the finish line. 


    I was soon on my last lap and managed to actually start running a bit more steady. I was digging deep and I honestly just kept thinking about the kind people sponsoring me and what a let down it would be if I didn't get to the finish.


    With 800m to go I really upped the pace and knew that the end was just around the corner and I could now really empty the tank. I came round the corner, blew a kiss to the family and made my way down the finishing shoot.


    Job Done!!!


    Tough Day!!

    I am 44 and 3 years ago I took up running.  If I can do it anyone can .... I'm the least likely marathon runner you could meet! For the 3rd year running I'm taking part in the Milton Keynes marathon ... Go me ... I don't care how long it takes me or how painful it is but I will finish it and claim my shiny medal.  Along the way I shall be remembering a beautiful little boy.  So many causes to donate to ... £2.60 (a penny for every mile) ... Is all I ask ps if you want to humiliate me with a make up free school run and make up free day at work (which I did with many tears last year) I have to raise at least £250!

    Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

    A huge thank you to everyone who has been so generous with their donations. It is inspiring and we hope to raise much more putting one foot in front of the other (that makes it sound much easier than it is!!)
    Following on from the Royal Windsor River Trail Half Marathon a and Regents Park 10k 
    a few months back, Team Pratt are running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October in memory of Sasha Gauci. Sasha died suddenly in December 2012 at 2 years of age, shortly after being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain tumour. Sasha's parents set up a remembrance fund in his name, and so far over £30,000 has been raised in Sasha's memory. 

    Anyone who has not had an opportunity to donate yet and would like to can do so here!

    Every penny really does make a difference. To give you an idea of what your donation can do:

    £6 could provide bed-mounted hand sanitiser units, which will improve the level of hand hygiene compliance.

    £10 will provide effective pain relief for four children with cancer for a week in Malawi.

    £9 could provide welcome packs for the patients: Biscuits, toys, water bottle, cup, bowl, numbing cream, medical tape, antibacterial mouth wash, sterilising wash (all things that patients and their family need to buy themselves in hospital).

    £25 will fund reagents used in the diagnosis of 10 children in Bangladesh.

    £40 will provide sterile gloves for chemotherapy preparation for one month at one of our project hospitals, protecting the staff from toxic chemotherapy.

    £50 will provide life-saving chemotherapy drugs for one child in Ghana.

    £100 pays for specialist toys for children who have lost their sight to cancer in the Philippines.

    £250 pays for a social care worker for 6 months at our project in Colombia.

    Sacha was just 2 when he died from a rare and aggressive brain cancer. He was only a few months older than Phoebe.

     I can't imagine how you ever get back on track after something like that happens let alone how you turn it into something positive. But somehow that's what Hannah and Vince have done. They decided to raise money for World Child cancer in Sachas memory and now we are doing the same.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

    In December 2012 my friends son, Sacha, died suddenly from a brain tumour.  He was 2 years old.  Their world stopped spinning - but not their compassion for others.  With the help of World Child Cancer they set up the Sacha Gauci Remembrance Fund to support a project in Malawi that provides curative and palliative treatment for children with cancer.  

    Since 2nd June 2013, Sacha's family and friends have run and walked over 1000km for Sacha in what would have been his 4th year.  I am joining the party a little late and am not quite on brand given that I am throwing swimming and cycling into the mix too, but hey-ho…

    A little goes a long way when helping children with cancer in Malawi.  Here are some examples of how your donation can make a very real difference:

    £6 buys pain relief drugs for one child with cancer

    £30 buys life-saving chemo drugs for one child with Burkitts lymphoma

    £154 provides nursing care for 10 children for a month

    £308 pays for awareness raising posters to encourage increased referral and earlier diagnosis

    £926 provides specialist training for a week for 10 healthcare professionals

    Should I or should I not run naked for 5km in Kent on May 18th? A friend suggested, as a joke, that I should take part in this 5km naked race as part of the 1000km challenge I set myself. I'm raising funds for a paediatric oncology unit looking after 250 children with cancer in Balantyre, Malawi for my son, Sacha's remembrance fund with World Child Cancer (more about that here: http://www.justgiving.com/1000KmforSacha ). But I'm in two minds. Some friends have been very enthusiastic others have said they'd pay money for me to keep my clothes on!  So I thought I'd leave it up to you. Here's how you can help me to decide:

    • If you'd like me to do the race please make a donation, however small and in the comments section write : "Go Naked". If this wins I will post evidence of completion of the challenge. Frankly, I'd rather I didn't have to do this so I'd urge you to take the next option.
    • If you think that actually, it would be better all round that I didn't run this event (let's face it, its a bit embarrassing for all concerned, my mum doesn't like the idea) then please make a donation and in the comments section write: "Kit on thank you". I encourage you to vote for this option.
    • To make a simple text vote with a small donation of £1 to £10 text : NUDE95 £? to 70070 e.g. NUDE95 £3 to 70070. If you are unable to post a comment it will be assumed that you fall in the Go Naked camp but you should be directed to a link that allows you to leave a message when you get a text stating that giftaid has been added.
    • Share this with friends and encourage them to vote for one of the above options. I'd like the sample size to be large enough so that I get a fully representative view.
    I will add up the value of those in the 'Go Naked' camp vs the 'Kit on thank you' crowd at 9pm on Friday 16th May. This is a bit of fun but every pound goes to help children who really need it at the project in Malawi. There's no real target here, anything I raise is a bonus, but I'd really like to reach £308 for this specific challenge which would provide nursing care for 20 children on the ward for a month.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I'm running the London marathon next Sunday 13th April) and in doing so I'm hoping to raise some money for World Child Cancer (The Sacha Gauci Remembrance Fund).

    My friends, Vincent and Hannah, lost their little boy, Sacha, very suddenly in December 2012, at the age of 2.5, when he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain tumour. Vincent and Hannah were very grateful for the excellent care Sacha received in the couple of days following his diagnosis and they wanted to help children in poorer countries where recources to help children with cancer are limited. They went on to set up a remembrance fund in Sacha's name to raise money for a World Child cancer project in Malawi, where children with some very treatable forms of cancer were often dying due to lack of money and available treatment, often with little more than paracetamol to relieve their pain. With generic drugs and relatively simple medical procedures, the majority of these children can be saved. When running the marathon for World Child Cancer, I will also be thinking of my cousin Antoinette's little boy, Oisin Nolan, who died of a rare form of leukemia when he was 5 years old, and his sister, Caitlin Nolan, aged 7, who has been courageously fighting a different form of leukemia over the past 2 years. http://www.cmrf.org//get-inspired/detail/oisin-caitlin

    Any amount that you are able to donate, however small, will be hugely appreciated - even the smallest donation can make a difference to children with cancer in Malawi.

    We did it! The Royal Half parks half marathon took place on Sunday 12th October and I managed to get round in almost exactly 2 hours. Thanks to everyone who has donated and thanks in advance to anyone yet to donate. Every pound makes a difference! For example £30 is enough to provide a whole course of chemotherapy for a child in Malawi who usually would not receive this care giving them a 50% chance of surviving Cancer. So thanks to everyone for donating!

    On the 6th april this year i will be running the Brighton marathon, I`m running it in memory of Sacha Gauci a local boy who at 2 years old suddenly passed away from a rare and aggressive brain tumour.

    Vincent & Hannah, Sacha`s Parents have decided to fundraise for World Child Cancer please take a few moments to look at their page and see what great work they do and how you`re donations would be spent.

    http://www.worldchildcancer.org/

    Thanks for taking the time to read my page I know times are hard at the moment so whatever you could donate would be much appreciated by myself, Vincent, Hannah and Oliver Sacha`s brother, and World Child Cancer.

    From Monday 25 November until Sunday 1 December I will be attempting to spend just £7 on any food and drink which passes my lips. And no, don’t worry, I’m not going to be turning into the biggest scrounger around, in fact I won’t be accepting free food or drinks either. So why am I doing this?

    December 1 will mark the one year anniversary of the death of a little boy I never had the fortune to meet. Sacha Gauci died aged just two from a very aggressive brain tumour, a tragic loss for his parents Vincent and Hannah and older brother Oliver.

    Despite the fact that Sacha’s life was not able to be saved, his parents were grateful for all the care and treatment that he did benefit from during the short time he was in hospital. So when they heard about a World Child Cancer project working to help children with cancer in Malawi, they were moved to hear that children there with very treatable cancers were often dying due to lack of money and available treatment - they have gone on to set up the Sacha Gauci Remembrance Fund and have so far raised over £16,000 for World Child Cancer's project in Malawi.

    So where does £7 for 7 days come in? In Malawi over half the population live on less than $1 per day. I am unsure of how I will manage to pay for food for a week with just £1 per day, and could not conceive the idea of having to also cover medical treatment for a sick child with that too.

    So, to raise money for Sacha’s Remembrance Fund, and help children with cancer in Malawi, as I say, I’ll be living off just £7 for a week. I won’t be using up any food in the cupboards, the only things that will pass my lips will have been paid for from my £7 (or water from the tap).

    What am I asking you to do?
    Well, there are various ways you can get involved and show your support for children with cancer in Malawi:

    -          Give something up – perhaps do without that bottle of wine/ Starbucks coffee/meal out one day and donate the money to this instead

     

    -          Eat & drink guilt free and sponsor me instead!

    Just £50 will cover the costs of chemotherapy for a child with cancer in Malawi – please give generously!

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

    Last year, my dear friends Hannah and Vince Gauci lost their gorgeous little boy, Sacha, very suddenly to a rare and aggressive brain tumour. He was just two years old. Sacha received wonderful care at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. The doctors were, very sadly, unable to save him, but thankfully Sacha didn't suffer.

    In Sacha's memory, Vince and Hannah have decided to raise money for World Child Cancer. This amazing charity works to improve cancer diagnosis, treatment and care for some of the world’s poorest children. It is estimated that at least 100,000 children with cancer die every year from a lack of diagnosis and basic treatment – all of them in low and middle income countries. Yet with generic drugs and relatively simple medical procedures, the majority of these children can be saved. As it is, many are dying needlessly, with nothing more than paracetamol to relieve their pain.

    So, I'm doing my bit to help. A 10k-run may seem fairly modest, but I am not a natural runner - 5k is the most I've ever done, so for me it's going to be tough. Raising money for this fantastic cause is the motivation I need - please help if you can. Thank you so much.

    I'm running the Milton Keynes Marathon on Monday 5th May and wanted to do a bit of a sweepstake.  I ran the 2013 MK Marathon in just over 5 hours and 30 mins.  I ran the Brighton Marathon, on 6th April 2014, in 4 hours and 54 minutes.  For a donation to the Sacha Gauci remembrance fund please log what time you think I will run the marathon on Monday.  It will be done to the nearest minute and the prize for the winner of the sweepstake is £30 (not taken out of the money raised for charity). 

    This fund is supporting a World Child Cancer Project in Malawi to provide curative treatment and palliative care for 250 children.  Every penny gets to the project.

    In December last year, my friends Hannah and Vincent lost their little boy Sacha who died of a very rare and aggressive brain tumour. 

    In Sacha's memory Hannah and Vincent have chosen to raise money for World Child Cancer who provide drugs and medical treatment for children suffering in some of the world's poorest countries.  Together with friends they have raised over £11,000 for this great cause.

    On Sunday 14th September 2013, I will be running the Great North Run on Tyneside in Sacha's memory and in doing so hope to raise as much money as possible for World Child Cancer.

    Hi

    Sacha Gauci was a fantastic little boy who was my daughter Esme's first friend. He lived until he was two years old.  He died shortly after being diagnosed with cancer. 

    Sacha's Mum and Dad, Vince and Hannah have set up a remembrance fund for Sacha.  They are grateful for the fantastic care that he received during his illness.  They recognised that many families around the World cannot expect the same level of care when their children get cancer, some dying when they could have been saved and others suffering great pain due to a lack of medicine or care.  They have therefore decided to support World Child Cancer which provides care for children with cancer who would not otherwise receive treatment.   

    Vince, an avowed exercise-sceptic since adulthood, has gone a step further, raising money for the remembrance fund through running challenges.  Inspired by this, I have decided to raise some money for this great cause.  I believe that raising money should involve challenge and as I haven't been running for years I thought that endurance running would be perfect.  To that end I am going to race the three classic distance races - 10K, half marathon, full marathon - culminating in the Manchester Marathon in April 2014.  

    I will push myself as hard as I can, with an aim to run the marathon in under 3 and a half hours.   Your donations to this fantastic charity will help to inspire me and more importantly, will change the lives of children and their families.

    Love

    George

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

    In December last year, despite the best efforts of staff at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, a beautiful little boy called Sacha died of a very rare and aggressive brain tumour. Thankfully he recieved the best possible treatment and care during his short battle for life and he did not suffer.

    However, every day in some of the worlds poorest countries, children, who may have curable cancers, die unnecessarily and without effective pain relief due to a lack of generic drugs and simple medical procedures. 

    In Sacha's memory, his parents Vince and Hannah, chose to raise money for World Child Cancer and in doing so, help provide much needed treatment for these children. So far, with a group of dedicated family and friends who like to call themselves 'Team Gauci', they have managed to raise almost £10,000.

    On Sunday 6th October 2013, as a very proud member of Team Gauci, I will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in London and in doing so hope very much that I can raise at least £500 towards Sacha's rememberance fund with World Child Cancer.

  • 1000KmforSacha

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. To donate in the UK text SACH80 & an amount of £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070. e.g. “SACH80 £5”.  For larger amounts please use the 'donate' button on this page. Thank you.

    I am running and trekking 1000 km in what would have been my son, Sacha’s 4th year. This will include at least one half marathon (Royal Parks), one marathon (Virgin London Marathon) and Europe’s toughest long-distance hike, the GR20 in Corsica.

    In December 2012 my son, Sacha, died suddenly from a brain tumour. He was 2 years old.  Our world stopped spinning. He was a lovely playful boy with a gorgeous smile and a fondness for wrestling with his big brother, Oliver.  We wanted friends and family to support a World Child Cancer project in Malawi in lieu of flowers at his funeral as we learned that children were dying from some very treatable forms of cancer and that palliative care without the intervention of the charity frequently amounted to little more than paracetamol.  We were truly astounded by the generosity of our friends, family and colleagues who donated more than the annual cost of treatment for the 200 children that are typically treated each year at the paediatric oncology unit of the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Balantyre.   With the help of WCC we set-up the Sacha Gauci Remembrance Fund which will be a lasting legacy to Sacha and a way of allowing us to continue to support the project in Malawi.  £3200 will support the paediatric oncology unit and the twinning partnership established by World Child Cancer for one month. My goal is to support the project for two months as a minimum (idealy I'd like to cover the entire annual cost of the operation!) so that children with survivable cancer can receive curative treatment and so that those sadly dying from cancer can receive the morphine that they need.

    To raise this sum I’m going to do something that is entirely outside my comfort zone while being personally symbolic and redolent with Sacha’s memory:

    Starting on what would have been Sacha’s 3rd birthday, June 2nd 2013, I will run or trek 1000 km over what would have been Sacha’s 4th year.  I will start the challenge with a run in the community we love, Stony Stratford where a ‘Big Lunch’ running festival is being held.  I will then run the Royal Parks Half Marathon in early October with a whole team of running friends and family followed in April 2014 with the Virgin London Marathon. Finally, to complete the challenge, I will trek the GR20 long-distance route in Corsica with my brother and Sacha’s uncle, Claude. This is widely regarded as the toughest hike in Europe – 180 km of ascent and descent along 20 peaks forming the spine of Corsica.  Many do not complete this trek.  Of course these challenges do not individually amount to 1000 km, to reach this target I will log and report each training run I do to include occasional Park Runs where I hope to log progress over the 5km distance.

    I can’t, though, do this on my own. I’ll have support from local running friends and family but I really do need to raise the funds so that we can help children with cancer.  Surprisingly little goes a very long way when helping children with cancer in Malawi. Here are some examples of how your donation can make a very real difference to these children:

    £6 buys pain relief drugs for one child with cancer

    £30 buys life-saving chemotherapy drugs for one child with Burkitts lymphoma

    £55 buys two hospital meals a day for 6 children for a month

    £154 will provide nursing care for 10 children for a month

    £308 will pay for awareness raising posters to encourage increased referral and earlier diagnosis

    £926 will provide specialist training for a week for 10 healthcare professionals.

    As many of you know my beautiful litlle nephew died on 1st December last year after a very short battle with a very rare brain tumour aged 2. We have all been greatly affected by Sacha's death, however Vincent and Hannah (his parents) have shown great courage, kindness and selflessness throughout this difficult time and have chosen to support World Child Cancer in Sacha's name. I, as his auntie, would also like to support them and Sacha's big brother Oliver (aged 5) in whatever way I can. I hope I can help us remember Sacha by fund raising for World Child Cancer who help children with cancer in Malawi who do not receive the care that we do in this country. The £350 I hope to raise would be enough to fund treatment for 7 children with cancer, offering them hope in their fight against cancer.

    I have been running for a few years now but have always said that I would never enter a race as I didn't like the idea of competing or running in a big crowd.( What if I need the loo or I fall over and make a total fool of myself or worse am unable to complete this mammoth task!!!) Nevertheless, here I am sorting out my justgiving page for a Half Marathon! When Vincent asked I just couldn't say no to this one even though I had never run more than 14k ever in one go. I just hope my legs hold out!

    In December 2012 Hannah and Vincent Gauci lost their 2 year old son Sacha very suddenly from a brain tumour.  As a mother with two boys, one the same age as Sacha, this really affected me to think that a little boy so happy and full of life could be taken away so suddenly.  No parent should ever have to go through the loss of a child. 

    Hannah and Vince have been inspiring with the way they have coped with this loss, and are raising money in memory of Sacha for World Child Cancer.  They have already raised over £7,000.

    I have only been running since November but am very proud to be running as part of “Team Gauci” in the London Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon raising money in memory of Sacha.

    Please help motivate me and support this very worthwhile charity.  Even a small donation can make a big difference to a child’s life.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page, I do hope you are able to donate.

    In December of 2012 our good friends Hannah and Vince lost their 2 year old son Sacha after a very brief battle with a brain tumour. An absolutely terrible thing for any parent to have to go through.

    They have remained strong and selfless since, and have raised over £6000 in Sacha's memory for World Child Cancer.

    I hope to raise as much money as possible to add to this amount, and to do this I am aiming to run and cycle a total of 2013 miles throughout 2013 (550m running and 1463m cycling).

    To some this might not seem a long way, to others it might, either way it represents an increase of 23% on my 2012 mileage, so will definately be a challenge for me.

    I am running the Liverpool and Royal Parks Half Marathons, as well as riding the Kendal, Liverpool Chester Liverpool and Ride With Brad Sportives. The rest of the miles will be just for "fun"....

    I am tracking my progress at: http://app.strava.com/athletes/370416 if you want to know how I'm getting along.

    Please please please dig deep

    Many thanks
