Team story

[p]In June 2018 The Simkiss Family received the devastating news that their little boy [b]Jude[/b] has a rare genetic disorder which affects his brain and will mean it is unlikely he will live past childhood. They were told that worst-case scenario he might not live to his 1st or 2nd birthday. (They celebrated his 1st birthday on 15 October 2018). His condition is so limiting that he cannot move or co-ordinate his body in any way, is unlikely to ever walk or talk and is visually impaired. Jude has since been diagnosed with a rare genetic Mitochondrial disease.[/p][p]Dale and Mel are heartbroken and living every parent's worst nightmare knowing that they may one day lose their child. It is nobody's fault that he has this condition, it is just a cruel stroke of nature that affects many other children and families across the UK.[/p][p]Having taken on The Reading Half Marathon in March 2019 and the Mizuno Endure 24 hour running challenge in June 2019 Team Jude are continuing their fundraising efforts and will be taking on many different challenges through 2019 and beyond, to raise as much money as possible for these two invaluable charities; [/p][p][url=http://www.alexanderdevine.org]The Alexander Devine Children's Hospice[/url] and [url=http://www.thelilyfoundation.org.uk]The Lily Foundation [/url][/p][p]Our [b]next challenge[/b] is The Great North Run on 8 September.[/p][p]Followed by:[/p][p]7 -11 Oct 2019 - 9 Peaks Solo Challenge (Welsh, Yorkshire and National 3 Peaks) in 7 days[/p][p]19 Oct 2019 - Brutal Challenge - Alice Holt [/p][p]5 April 2020 - Reading Half Marathon[/p][p]26 April 2020 - London Marathon[/p][p]We will post all our activities and updates here and on our facebook page: [url=http://www.facebook.com/pg/teamjudeomnia]www.facebook.com/pg/teamjudeomnia[/url][/p][p]Supported by [url=http://www.omniaoutsourcing.com]Omnia Outsourcing[/url][/p]
