My story

[p]Hello,[/p][p]In April 2020 I will be doing my best to run, walk and crawl 304km from the West coast to the East coast of England. Covering some of the toughest terrain in the country, this will be part of an official race covering Wainwright's famous coast to coast route, stretching from St Bees on the west to Robin Hoods Bay on the east.[/p][p][url=https://www.northerntraverse.com/]https://www.northerntraverse.com/[/url][/p][p]I have never attempted anything this long and I am both terrified and excited to take it on, to raise money for some amazing causes, which have helped us and those close to us in recent years. Nearly two years ago you all donated so generously to help us collectively raise £10,000 for these great charities (£11,500 with gift aid!) Can we do it again and more? Can we get all six charities or wards £2,000 each? Is it possible? I have no idea but let's give it a go! I know it is a lot to ask you to contribute again, but the money will do so much good and help families truly in need. The situations these charities and wards help with are the toughest imaginable and they all do incredible work. [/p][p]Here’s a brief overview of each one.[/p][p][url=https://www.moment-um.org/home/]https://www.moment-um.org/home/[/url] – "Momentum Children's Charity supports children, and their families, across Surrey, SW London and Sussex who are faced with the diagnosis of cancer or another life-challenging condition." [/p][p][url=https://www.shootingstar.org.uk/]https://www.shootingstar.org.uk/[/url] - "Shooting Star Children's Hospices is a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families."[/p][p][url=https://www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk/]https://www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk/[/url] - "The Children’s Trust offer both residential and community-based rehabilitation services for children and young people with a brain injury."[/p][p][url=https://www.evelinalondon.nhs.uk/Home.aspx]https://www.evelinalondon.nhs.uk/Home.aspx[/url] - "We raise money so that Evelina London Children's Hospital can fund life-saving equipment, life-changing research and provide the little comforts that make hospital less scary for our youngest and most anxious patients." (Our daughter Léa was treated here and the level of care is fantastic!).[/p][p][url=https://www.epsom-sthelier.nhs.uk/news/childrens-ward-team-recognised-with-special-award-1720/]https://www.epsom-sthelier.nhs.uk/news/childrens-ward-team-recognised-with-special-award-1720/[/url] – The Casey Ward at Epsom Hospital is a children's NHS ward, treating patients up to 16-years-old with a range of conditions. The team have treated Léa on a few occasions and do stellar work in our community, despite stretched government funding. The HDU unit at Epsom Hopsital, which saved me from pneumonia and sepsis, will also receive money from this fundraising which is obviously a place hugely close to my heart. Thanks to their amazing response I can still do these things! [/p][p]I hope you will find any amount you can to help fund these excellent charities and wards, to ensure they can keep doing their invaluable work to help and assist so many. It will also keep me slogging up those hills, in the middle of nowhere, in the pitch black, on both the training runs and the race itself.[/p][p]Thanks for reading and hopefully for donating![/p][p]Dan and family.[/p]
