I promised Henry that I would make him proud. By organising the run close to Henry’s birthday I remained focused and motivated. I wanted to raise money for Sands and awareness to help other parents break the silence around stillbirths.
Marion Currie, said: “Kellie organised a very successful 5k run in Falkirk in May this year for Sands to raise funds in memory of her son Henry. Originally her target was a few thousand with perhaps around 20 – 40 runners taking part – in the end there were over 150 runner who took part and so far they’ve raised in excess of £33k. It has been a phenomenal success.”
Kellie has been nominated as part of 40 volunteers for #Sands40. Join them at Sands 40th Anniversary Conference on 17th November 2018 in Glasgow.
Sands is marking its 40th anniversary this year and we would like to say thank you for the incredible support and contribution that our dedicated volunteers make across the UK to support bereaved parents and anyone affected by the death of a baby.
We will be hosting an awards ceremony during the Sands 40th Anniversary Conference to celebrate the wide range of volunteering involvement in Sands and acknowledge 40 volunteers for their dedication and commitment.
