Ben and I have been running and fundraising for various charities over the past 4 years. During that time we've realised how much fun and freedom the running buggy gives to us both.
Therefore we want to raise money to supply running buggies for other families who will benefit from them.
To do this, we're running the Liverpool Rock n Roll Half Marathon on 27th May and The btr Tour of Merseyside 2nd - 8th July.
Each buggy costs at least £750, so we're aiming to initially raise enough for 2 and after that let's see how things go.
We hope the first recipient will be Holly Smallman, after seeing how much they loved the spring 5k, how could it not be.....
In 2014 through a number of runs, rides, truck pulls, sky dives, footy marathons and peoples pure generosity, we raised £12,000 for; Kingsbury Special Needs School - Ben's School Phelan McDermid Syndrome Foundation - Official Foundation Ben's Trust Fund In 2015 and 2016 we continued raising awareness for Phelan McDermid Syndrome and to raise funds for PMSF UK and a number of local charities. Now in 2017 we're setting up "Ben's Buggy Fund" to supply running buggies for children and families who need them.
