#teamgoodwille are running the British 10k again this year, raising money for two UK charities; Sands and the Children’s Society.
SANDS supports people who have been affected by the loss of a baby by providing bereavement support through remembrance events, online forums and a support helpline amongst other services. They also fund research in to stillbirths and neonatal deaths, working with the NHS and other organisations to help improve maternity care.
The Children’s society supports vulnerable children in the UK, for example children living with adults who misuse substances, those suffering with mental health problems and young carers. They work primarily with children aged 10 to 18 and in 2015/2016 they helped over 18,000 children. Alongside this they also campaign for changes in law to help these children.
The British 10K, sponsored by Virgin Sport, takes place on Sunday 9th July. Our 7 person team will be aiming for some PB’s but more importantly to raise money and awareness for SANDS Charity along with the Children’s Society.
