Cannock's Prospective Parliamentary candidate, Amanda Milling was amongst more than 70 fabulous fundraisers who lined up for Newlife Foundation at the Great Birmingham Run – and between them have raised more than £5,000 to support disabled and terminally ill children.
The money the 70 runners have jointly raised will be used to provide specialist equipment for disabled and terminally ill children across the UK, with much of the money being restricted to the Midlands. This means more families in need are set to get the essential equipment they need; like wheelchairs and buggies for mobility, car seats and beds for safety and communication aids so they can tell their parents when they are hungry or in pain.
Newlife fundraising manager Nora Smith said: “We are very grateful for the support of all our runners – it was a challenging route but everyone seemed to enjoy the experience, and there was a real spirit of cameraderie. The money they have raised will help make a real difference to children’s lives.”
Newlife was a ‘Gold Bond’ partner for the Great Birmingham Run, which is the biggest event of its kind in the West Midlands.
