My story

[p]It was a moment of weakness when Marilyn rang me to ask - 'would I?'. The distances didn't look that bad and the scenery looked magnificent. Having managed kilimanjaro admittedly a few years ago I was up for the challenge. Then I saw the hills and the realization that again the scenery is likely to be seen through an hypoxic lens. Not because of altitude this time, but simply lack of breath![/p][p]ECHO is a charity which is led and supported by parents and relatives of children with heart disease. Congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect affecting about 1 in every 100 newborn babies. Families are supported by ECHO at every stage of their heart child’s journey through childhood, teenage years and during the transition to adult services. The charity offers a number of practical services aimed at supporting these families, often when there is little other help available.[/p][p]Given that, a few hills on a bike doesn't seem too much. All the money donated will go to ECHO and not to fund my trip.[/p][p]Thanks so much[/p][p]Sara[/p][p][br][/p]

Caroline May and Baby Arthur

As a PICU parent I remember you quietly standing next to me & together we watched little Arthur laying there fighting so hard to pull through. You were a calm, empathetic and reassuring presence at a moment when I needed it most. Thank you x
