Along with their friends Spencer, Lauren and Jade, Shaun and Dani are fundraising for SANDS to help them continue to provide bereaved parents with essential support.

“Until this happened to us, we were completely unaware of the extent of this situation and everything bereaved parents have to go through” Shaun explained.

Shaun and Dani were given a Bereavement Pack created by SANDS which includes essential information and advice when needed the most. They also received a “Remember Me” Box to save treasured memories of their son. The couple were also welcomed to support groups both in person and on Facebook. “Dani has been using the Facebook Group she is part of a lot and is really benefiting from it with people putting her mind at ease by sharing their stories too. The help and support on offer is truly amazing” Shaun said.

Having never completed a 5k run before, the group are currently taking up some training to complete their Big Fun Run the best they can.

“We see this as a challenge and are doing so to try and raise as much money as we can to help this charity and raise awareness of what they represent” Shaun explained. “Any donations would be greatly appreciated not only by us but by SANDS and Franklin too… you’d also be paying to have a little laugh on our behalf”.

Good luck to this top team in their Fun Run for Franklin. To support their fundraising visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/s-adams5
