Running 10k for Tabitha and Oscar's Wish Foundation
Dan is going to run the Brighton 10k this year in support of Oscar's Wish Foundation (OWF).
OWF provide bereavement support for families and children immediately and after a family loses their baby. The charity have been an amazing support for us and we hope to support them back and raise awareness of their cause for years to come.
Here's a little bit about them taken from their website:
Oscar's Wish Foundation (OWF) is a Registered Charity (1169892) based in Sussex.
We provide comfort and support to Parents and siblings following the loss of a baby or babies before, during or shortly after birth.
We are working all over Sussex offering Bereavement Support, Specialist Bereavement Counselling* and Support Programmes for Mums and Dads.
We are working alongside the Brighton Sussex and University Hospitals in Sussex to create gentle, calm spaces for families to spend time with their baby/ies within their Hospitals. We have undertaken a number of Refurbishment projects across the Early Pregnancy Units and Labour Ward to date
"We truly cannot thank you enough for creating such a safe, well equipped space for us to say hello and goodbye to our beautiful baby boys"
We base our Charity on heartfelt, compassionate experiences to educate and raise awareness of loss for Parents, Siblings and the whole family.
We have a range of Resources, a Library, Information Packs and Bereavement Support Programmes available.
Our online Support Groups have allowed a dedicated space for Parents to explore their feelings, thoughts and share their grief journey with others.
"This group has been a real lifeline for me during some of the hardest days of my life"
