Story

[p]On Friday 24th March 2017 our beautiful, caring and sweet first-born daughter Violet-Grace Youens, was run over whilst crossing the road with her Nannie in a hit-and-run by a stolen car. Sadly, our beautiful Violet-Grace, passed away the next day. However, our brave little fighter went on to save lives by donating her organs. Violet has also since inspired other remarkable people to join the Organ Donor Register. [/p][p]We will be taking on a series of challenges in order to raise funds for our local charity The Isabella-Rose Foundation, and also money for a concept called ‘Violet-Grace’s Gift’. [/p][p]The Isabella-Rose Foundation was set up in loving memory of Isabella-Rose Parr, who was sadly born sleeping on 16/10/2011. Isabella-Rose’s parents Amanda and Geoff Parr, along with her grandparents David and Nicola Pope, have continued to raise money to help many families across the North West of England, supporting them with the bereavement of their baby or child.[/p][p]Violet-Grace’s Gift is a concept whereby money raised will be used to help families in our community who are struggling with bereavement of a child. We hope, in-turn, to grow our Violet-Grace family and continue to carry out events such as the Ride-4-Violet-Grace. We also hope to raise awareness of organ donation and transplantation; a subject very close to our hearts.[/p][p]This year Glenn (Violet’s daddy), the Isabella-Rose Team and Violet-Grace Team will be joining forces and taking on the following challenges:[/p][p]28th April: London Marathon Sunday (26.2 mile run)[/p][p]9th May: Southport Triathlon - Sprint Distance (750m swim-20k cycle-5k run)[/p][p]26th May: Liverpool Rock N Roll Marathon (26.2 mile run)[/p][p]7th July: The Grind (5 mile run)[/p][p]21st July: Ride 4 Violet-Grace (10 mile ride and fun day)[/p][p]3rd-4th August: Cotswolds 24 hours (team relay race with 9k Laps - as many as possible in 24 hours)[/p][p]Cycle ride to be confirmed and announced[/p][p]Car wash at fire station date to be confirmed [/p][p]31st December: Liverbird Marathon (26.2 mile run)[/p][p]St Helens is a wonderful community who come together in times of crisis. If anyone would like to take part in a challenge in memory of our two beautiful angels, they can get in touch via our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram), or donate to our Virgin Money page.[/p]
