Names: Maddie and Baxter

Why are you taking part in #challenge15? 15 babies die before, during or shortly after birth every day in the UK. Baxter and I are taking part in #challenge15 this January to highlight this appalling fact, and to fundraise to help save families from this tragedy.

What are you doing to complete your #challenge15? Baxter and I will be walking a mile a day for 15 days to cover 15 miles together. And I will also be walking 15 miles on 15 January with other staff members from Sands to help raise awareness about #15babiesaday
