Kayleigh Drew – Bideford Half Marathon

Fundraiser Kayleigh DrewShow your support for one of our fundraisers Kayleigh, who is running the Bideford Half Marathon on Sunday 8 March 2020!

Kayleigh only started running a year ago, so this is a fantastic achievement. She has chosen to run for our charity in recognition of the support we gave to her brother and sister-in-law, when their daughter Rosie was born. Rosie was very poorly and the doctors discovered that her kidneys weren’t functioning properly. Rosie is now two and she has to have dialysis every day until she finds a kidney donor. Rosie is just one of the many children who spend lots of time at Caroline Thorpe ward. This is why our projects to improve rooms and provide toys and pain-distractions on the ward are so important.

We are very lucky to have Kayleigh running for us and wish her lots of luck with her training and on the big day. If you spot Kayleigh at the race, give her a cheer for us! If you’d like to support Kayleigh, you can donate on her Virgin-Giving page.
