For those of you who don’t know, I am taking part in the Manchester Great North Run today!
It is a 10k run, which happens every year on Deansgate Road. I have never taken part in any kind of run or marathon before, so this is a huge deal for me!
Earlier this year my sister suffered a miscarriage. She was quite far on and it was a really, really sad and difficult time. Especially for her and her partner. After leaving the hospital she received a small memory box. Inside it has a teddy bear, a poem, a birth acknowledgement certificate and in some cases photographs. This memory box helped my sister a great deal, it gave her something to always remember her baby by, and that is something we will all be grateful for.
Simba Simpson’s Memory Box Appeal are the amazing charity that provided my sister with something so small, yet made a huge difference. So I am doing the 10k run for them and for all the people who have lost their babies.
Any donations large, or small would be hugely appreciated. You can sponsor my via my Virgin Money Giving Page found here.
You can also have a read of the Simba website, and read about all the amazing things they do, and read stories about all the people they have helped here (http://www.simbacharity.org.uk/)
Thank you so much to everyone that has already donated. I will keep you updated on my sweaty progress, haha, throughout the day, probably on my instagram (@Rachael_CB)
Wish me luck!!!!
