The Wolf Run Just Giving Page for Starlight Children's Foundation

    As you may have seen in our recent training pictures here a team from ABD are signed up to tackle the woods, obstacles, lakes and fields of the hardcore 10k The Wolf Run.

Designed to challenge mental and physical strength and skill, the team consisting of David Turley, Samantha Travella, Jess Arnold, Emily Poynton, Caroline Brailey, Nadine Cook, Madison Stormes-Moreno, Charlotte Lea, Nicolle Phillips, Helen Edwards and Alistair Everett will be fundraising for Starlight Children's Foundation

    Starlight are a fantastic charity supporting seriously and terminally ill children all over the country during their time in hospital and hospices. Starlight aim to distract children from the pain, fear and isolation they may feel during this time through support, boost boxes full of toys and games to distract them, and organised hospital pantomimes and plays. 

    Starlight say that a little fun and distraction can go a long way and help brighten even the darkest days, and one of our members of staff Madison found this completely true when her daughter was supported through her illnesses:

    "Starlight were absolutely incredible when my daughter was seriously ill in hospital and for all her out patient visits. I honestly don't think she would have come out of it as well as she has had it not been for Starlight. They got her through every procedure that she was awake for and provided her with such amazing play therapy in between. They're amazing!" 

    We want to fundraise for Starlight so that they can keep providing this invaluable helping hand to ill children to make sure that childhood continues inside the hospital and children aren't left feeling anxious and alone at these difficult times. Please do visit our JUST GIVING page and donate anything you can. We are truly grateful.
