Team Lucia - Manchester 10k Run
On Sunday 22nd May, "Team Lucia" ran the Manchester 10k, there was 14 of us in total, running in Max Appeal t-shirts, helping raise awareness of 22q11DS. Knowing all these people were running for our little girl was amazing and quite emotional, we can't thank them all enough!!! Race day was brilliant, the atmosphere and support from spectators along the route was amazing. Lucia was waiting at 4K with her big brother, Grandma and Grandpa to cheer us all on - she definitely gave her Daddy and me the boost we needed to get round. We started out just wanting to raise awareness for Max Appeal and 22q, with hopefully raising a few £££s along the way. We definitely didn't expect to raise as much as we did - £2,590 - and we are so grateful to everyone who has supported us. xxxxx
Here is where we try to post up all the things going on for families, fundraisers and about research projects that people might want to get involved with!
