Sparks Charity
Sparks is the children’s medical research charity. Our sole remit is to fund research across the whole spectrum of paediatric medicine. Our goal is for ALL babies to be born healthy and stay healthy. Every day 70 babies are born in the UK with a life-threatening condition or an illness that will affect them and their families for life. Sparks aims to reduce this statistic so all children have the chance of a healthy future. Since 1991, we have committed over £26 million into pioneering research projects across a wide spectrum of medical conditions including childhood cancers, cerebral palsy, premature birth and spina bifida. In total, we have funded 265 research projects in more than 80 hospitals and universities across the UK.

Mark Stone's 2011 London Marathon sponsorship

My page:


I am running the 2011 London Marathon in aid of the children's medical research charity Sparks.

Approximately 1 in 30 babies in the UK are born with a health condition that will affect them and their families for the rest of their lives. Sparks aim to help all babies be born healthy and stay healthy by funding high quality medical research into childhood diseases.

You can sponsor me on this page. Gift aid will be claimed and the donation quickly passed to Sparks. Virgin Money Giving is a non-profit organisation.

Many thanks for your support,
