This March I will be walking 10 miles in aid Ruben's Fund, which was set up by my very good friend's niece, after losing her son, Ruben, at three months old.

On NYE 2021 they rushed him to their hospital, and suffered the devastating news that he had gone into cardiac arrest. They were meant to be celebrating with family, but instead they had to leave their other son behind, and have their hope managed to possibly not bringing their other son home. After twelve more days of fighting, Ruben, passed away on 12 January in their arms.

As you can imagine, this time of year is very hard for them as a family, and we want to show our support, by helping them fundraise and get closer to their target of £200,000, which currently stands at £163,000, raised in 21 months!

Your money will be going towards a research project they are helping to fund, which will allow the specialist research team at Royal Brompton to set up a focused and dedicated project to research genetic diagnosis, which can help predict disease course, open avenues for personalised treatment, and have implications for family screening.

Any donation is welcome and if you wish to walk with me let me know!
Thank you so much! Gillian Codd
