Isosec took on the ‘90,000 Challenge’ on October 8th to raise money and awareness for baby charity Bliss, who care for babies born too sick or too soon.
Every year, 90,000 babies are admitted to hospital for specialist care – many of these babies will need lifesaving intensive care. Baby charity Bliss is there for these little ones by empowering their families and working with health professionals to ensure they have the best care possible. Bliss also supports over £10 million of research to make a lasting difference to the lives of premature and sick babies, and fights for their rights within the government and NHS.
Isosec committed to walk a foot for every single one of the babies born premature in one year. That’s over 17 miles! We actually smashed our target and trekked a total of 22.5 miles!
Isosec will also be holding a 90,000 step week challenge in Manchester in November for World Prematurity Day. Check back here or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to take part. If you manage to hit the 90,000 target you could even be eligible for free cake!
So far we’ve raised over £600! You can still donate to our page for a few more weeks so please give as much or as little as you can for this worthy cause and help us to take a step for babies in need.
You can sponsor us here and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Bliss. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity’s behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
