Why run for us? We believe that all families raising disabled and seriously ill children should have the same opportunities as others. Families across the UK face many daily challenges which range from juggling hospital appointments, medication and caring for siblings to finding local support groups and advice on conditions. Family Fund exists to remove some of the barriers that these families face, to ease some of the daily pressures and improve their quality of life.
Every penny you raise in sponsorship will help us to develop and deliver new ways in which to help families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. You can read our fundraising promise here.

Asda Foundation York 10K - 6 August 2017Simplyhealth Great North Run – 11 September 2017Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon - 8 October 2017Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon – 8 October 2017
