Royal Parks Half Marathon – Supporting the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity
Posted on Wednesday, 12 October, 2016
We had an early start on Sunday morning as we were running the Royal Parks half marathon to support the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.
The Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years of age with a life threatening or terminal illness and need the bespoke support we offer.
Today there are an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life limiting or life threatening condition who may require palliative care (University of Leeds, 2011). Many of these children and their families are able to cope or are not in a ‘crisis situation’. However, thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis.
If you are able to, please sponsor us by donating what you can on our fund raising page below.
