Raising money for Young Lives vs Cancer and Rockinghorse Children's Charity
Through until Summer 2025, we are going to be clocking up 15 million steps, raising money for a couple of charities that have become especially close to our hearts.
At the start of February 2023, our lives changed significantly. After a number of months having infection after infection, and being in and out of school, our 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia.
There are no words to describe how it feels being in a room with consultants and nurses, told that your daughter may not see the summer without treatment.
But, we are filled with hope and possibility. Isabelle has redefined what it means to be resilient, putting on a brave face and being extremely cheeky to those making her better. We are so proud of her, and we aspire to be just as resilient in the future!
We are so honoured to have the support of so many people to help us cope as a family. The nurses and consultants at the NHS (real life angels), our family and friends, our extremely supportive work colleagues, and all of our business and personal connections we have made over the years.
We are raising money for Rockinghorse, the Royal Alexandra Children’s hospital charity, and Young Lives vs Cancer. Because quite frankly, alongside the amazing NHS team, they are incredible, and we wouldn’t be where we are without them.
Clearly, no amount of fundraising will be able to make up for what they have collectively given us back, but we want them to be able to support other families going through the same horrors in the future.
However you can support us, be it by way of encouraging messages, walking or running with us over the next 2 years, or donating money, we would be hugely appreciative!
