Team story

[p]Staying in is the new going out... for now. [/p][p]We were supposed to be running the Coventry Half Marathon on 5th April 2020, but it's been postponed so we were thinking, what can we do instead? [/p][p]We've decided to climb Ben Nevis (1345m) using our staircases instead. Then we worked out how many stair assents we had to do using the calculator (https://staircasechallenge.club/) and wished we hadn't. It's going to be brutal. We haven't even got the beautiful scenery to keep us going. [/p][p]But if it means raising some money in memory of Ben and helping other children with rhabdomyosarcoma then we'll do it. [/p][p]Thank you to James, Jo, Liz, Hannah, Stu, Tanya, Rob, Ellen, Nikki, Kim and Mel who were all foolish enough to agree to do the challenge with me (Sarah, Ben's mum). [/p][p]Join our team, more the merrier![/p][p]We'll all be starting the ascent at 10am on 5th April 2020, with breaks for snacks and lunch with a scenic view (or not) and keeping in touch with each other via Zoom![/p][p][br][/p][p]Pass The Smile for Ben is a Special Named Fund at CCLG, raising funds for research into rhabdomyosarcoma and supportive care, including nutrition and complementary therapies.[/p][p]Ben was diagnosed with alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma in June 2018. He gained his superhero wings in June 2019 and now flies high with the birds and the angels. He stays with us forever in our hearts.[/p][p]Before diagnosis he was a bright, happy, cheeky boy. He remained the same despite the ongoing brutal effects of his chemotherapy treatment. Even when first diagnosed he wanted to Pass his Smile to other people to cheer them up. Pass The Smile was born.
