Team story

[p]In 2018, myself and Steve found out we were expecting a sibling for our IVF miracle. We were overjoyed and began making arrangements to become a family of 4. Just prior to our dating scan, we found out that we’d had a silent miscarriage (also referred to as a missed miscarriage). We’d lost our longed for baby and completely heartbroken. [/p][p]Since losing the baby, we have been raising awareness for baby loss and fundraising for various causes to help bereaved parents through the darkest of times following baby loss which is why we decided to take part in the 250k steps for January. We run a kickboxing club called AKA Kickboxing and are asking all our members to get involved too, hence the team name! [/p][p]Are you aiming to get fitter and more active this New Year? Why not get started by increasing your daily step count while supporting the Miscarriage Association and join our team? [/p][p]Step Up for the M.A. challenges you to complete 250,000 steps throughout January – the same as the number of pregnancies that are estimated to end in miscarriage in the UK each year.[/p][p]Miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy and molar pregnancy can be distressing at any time. But we know many have found the last year especially difficult, with limited access to some services and partners often being unable to attend for scans. Feelings of isolation and loneliness have understandably been magnified by not being able to see family and friends.[/p][p]The M.A. has been – and continues to be – there to help people through.[/p][p]Demand has significantly increased – and yet, like many charities, they have seen their fundraising income drop over the past 10 months, particularly due to the cancellation of major events.[/p][p]By Stepping Up for the M.A., you can help us raise funds to continue our work throughout this crisis and beyond.[/p][p]To join our Step Up team, all you need to do is simply pledge to complete 250,000 steps in January and ask your friends, family or colleagues to sponsor your efforts![/p][p]It’s up to you how you complete your step count – you can choose to do an equal number each day (that’s 8,065 steps or 3.8 miles a day!), or you can tick off longer distances on the weekend if that suits you better.
