Birmingham Half Marathon Triumph!
Our wonderful fundraisers braved the rain and ran a total of 13 miles in aid of our cause this Sunday.
All our fundraisers had a very personal connection with the hospital which drove them to almost double their fundraising targets.
Matthew and Natasha both were fundraising to say thank you for the care their daughter received over the last couple of years for a spinal condition called Scoliosis. Erin’s care was life changing for her and her family, so much so she’s now back to a sport which she loved!
“Erin has actually gone back to running parkrun over the past few weeks; pain free; something she could have only dreamt of before” Mum – Natasha
Adam Roberts, another of our fundraisers had a hip resurface at the hospital some years ago and because of his great experience of the hospital, decided to apply to work there. Safe to say he was successful and has been working for the trust for some years.
“Not only did ROH give me a new lease of life, I am also lucky enough to work for the Trust. So I have personally experienced, and also get to see on a daily basis, the amazing job all of the staff do for our patients”
Its truly humbling to see such support from our community, towards such an important appeal.
We have raised a total of £856 including gift aid towards the Eureka Appeal.
This will support an extra 56 hours of research nursing on specific projects which is incredible.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our fundraisers, who went above and beyond to reach their target, raise awareness and promote our charity!
