What will I be doing?
On August Bank Holiday Weekend (date tbc), I'll be cycling a total of 50K in ONE DAY! ***disclaimer - I don't even remember the last time I sat on a bike so this is going to be a REAL challenge for me!!
Who are Sands?
The Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity is a national charity in the United Kingdom that provides support to anyone affected by the death of a baby.
Why am I doing this?
I teach Pregnancy & Postnatal Yoga so I spend my days surrounded by pregnant women, mums and babies. I feel so blessed to have chosen this career but unfortunately not every pregnancy is plain sailing. During the last year alone, I've seen three women go through an unimaginable loss, all the while being restricted by Covid. And these are just the women I know personally, who have chosen to speak out. While I can't do or say anything to heal their losses, I CAN help to raise funds for Sands who provide support for bereaved families in their darkest days.
What else do Sands do?
They also help to provide training for healthcare professionals to ensure they know how to deal with these heartbreaking situations. They're on a mission to campaign for change and they're playing a vital role in supporting research, so that fewer babies lives are lost and fewer families have to experience this pain.
How much shall I donate?
Every little helps and any donation no matter how big or small can really help to make a difference. I've never done anything as big as this before so please share my Crowdfunder and support me on this journey!
