Running for Gt Ormond Street Children's Charity!

On May 13th our eldest son is running to raise money for GOSH Children's Charity, and specifically to raise funds for the new Gastro Research Project.

He has always loved Athletics and currently runs with a local club, enjoying a very successful 2011/2012 season so far! Several members of our family suffer with Gastrointestinal Disease and associated conditions. Josh's youngest siblings are treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital and we as a family are incredibly grateful for the support and treatment we receive from there. The twins' Consultant has recently climbed Kilimanjaro to raise funds for new gastro research and treatment so Josh decided to do his bit! Climbing mountains was a bit ambitious, so instead he is running 5K in Suffolk on 13th May at Alton Water, in Suffolk.

Josh regularly runs between 2 and 7 K, competing several years above his age group. He too has suffered gastro issues as a young child and joint problems since and really hopes GOSH can help make a difference for others.

We and so many others would be incredibly grateful if you felt able to sponsor him, our JustGiving Page is here.
