COLLEAGUES 5K CHALLENGE FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER
A group of 7 colleagues from Charities Aid Foundation in Kent are completing 5k together at Big Fun Run in Mote Park on Saturday 4th August in aid of Children with Cancer UK.
2 year old Imogen Montague was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in June 2018 and a group of mum Kelly’s friends and colleagues have rallied together in support.
“Imogen has been such a tough little cookie and is dealing with all that’s thrown at her amazingly” family friend Vikki Denny explained.
“Life is pretty much on hold for Imogen and her family for the next 2 years until her treatment is over. Kelly hasn’t been working since Imogen’s diagnosis and her brother Brody is feeling the impact as Kelly needs to spend a lot of her time caring for Imogen”.
Vikki and her colleagues decided to do something positive and entered Big Fun Run to raise money for Children with Cancer UK.
Big Fun Run events are the perfect way for the local community to fundraise for a cause they really care about.
“After finding out about Imogen’s diagnosis we couldn’t imagine how her family were feeling and really wanted to do something to help other children and families in this situation” Vikki said.
Big Fun Run attracts people of all shapes, sizes and ages. No event is timed, it is all about participants having fun and raising funds for a charity close to their heart.
“Our team have been going on regular walks and jogging both during lunch breaks and outside of work”.
With an original target of £250, Vikki and her colleagues have smashed their fundraising and so far raised an amazing £1070 to date.
“We are raising this money for Children with Cancer UK in honour of beautiful and brave children like Imogen”.
The Big Fun Run promises a fun, relaxed atmosphere and is the perfect challenge to set yourself in 2018. To find out more about the 2018 Series and find events near you, visit www.bigfunrun.com.
