My story

[p]As Head Boy of his primary school, Reuben has decided that before he leaves for secondary school, he would like to raise money for a charity by running 20 times around his school field. This equates to just over 10K.[/p][p]Reuben will not run the whole 20 laps in one go. He has given himself 10 school days and will run in his break time, lunch and before or after school to get the laps done. He will start his run on Monday 8th and finish by Friday 19th July.[/p][p]Reuben has chosen the charity Naitbabies. This is because his sister was diagnosed with Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia (NAIT) shortly after she was born in 2012. Fortunately she was strong and following a blood platelets transfusion at three days old (picture below) she fully recovered and has no lasting health effect. Other babies are not so fortunate and Reuben has decided to raise money for Naitbabies as they support families, research and treatment.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Naitbabies [/p][p]are a small Charitable Incorporated Organisation run by families affected by the platelet disorder FNAIT – Fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia; a life threatening bleeding disorder that results from an incompatibility between parents for platelet-specific antigens. This mismatch may cause the maternal immune response to produce antibodies against her baby’s platelet antigens that are inherited from the father and absent in the mother. [/p][p]For further information about the charity please visit www.naitbabies.org[/p][p][br][/p]
