So, I mentioned in this morning’s email (and hundreds of others time in person at the club) that it’s Born Survivor this weekend.
106 of us tackling the mud, water and obstacles of Capesthorne Hall.
But we are, of course, doing it for a good cause too.
A great cause in fact.
This is Ollie and his sister Amelia.
They live in nearby Poynton.
They both have Batten’s Disease.
To quote his parents: “This cruel disease will rob our beautiful baby boy of the ability to walk, talk, swallow, play and see. Batten disease is always fatal and children normally pass away between the ages of 6 and 12 years”
The local community has rallied around the family and ‘Ollie’s Army’ as they have called it have been raising valuable funds – to aid treatment, adapt the house to meet their growing needs, provide awesome experiences for the children in the time they have left and enable the self employed father to have valuable, but limited, time with children.
Our target is to raise £10k this Saturday.
An average of £100 each from all the friends, family, etc of those taking part.
And we’d love it if you’d be so kind to help in any way you can.
And donation, of any size is hugely appreciated.
So, whatever our relationship, we’d love it if you could help out in anyway.
If you are, or have been a member and got benefited from that.
If you just enjoy reading these blogs.
However we know you, your help would be a great deal 🙂
