The KFA Connect embark on a Month of March Madness for Carey’s Friends!!
Day 1 – Tuesday, 1st March 2022
The KFA team are fundraising for Carey’s Friends.
Carey is the much-loved Nephew of KFA Connect Directors, Richard & Liz Austin. Carey was nine months old when in December 2021 he was diagnosed with Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (JMML), a rare form of blood cancer.
Please help us raise some money for the Children’s Cancer & Leukemia Group (CCLG) for the ongoing research into JMML. Research into childhood cancers is very badly funded and more work is urgently needed to give children like Carey the best possible outcomes.
We can help to make that happen. Carey’s parents have called the fund ‘Carey’s Friends’ because, along with all the other little children with JMML, that’s what you are. Whether fundraising, donating or helping us spread the word, you’re all Carey’s friends. For Carey and for other babies and children who are suffering, we hope you will join us.
Some of the team are cycling, running, some are jogging and others walking – but all are setting their own personal target to complete in March for Carey’s Friends.
Our team of 6 are planning a mixture of personal challenges this March:
- Richard is going to cycle 500 km
- Liz is going to run/jog/walk 160 km
- Pauline is going to walk 160 km
- Joe is going to walk 160 km
- Nicki is going to run/jog/walk 160 km
- Julita is going to run 500km – yes you read that right, 500km!!
“Having said yes to a similar challege last year, I know what I’m letting myself in for – running/jogging/walking 100 miles in a month.
Last year I thought it would be easy, today, if I’m completely honest (having done it last year) I know it won’t be!
So please, get behind our team – for Carey and his family and everyone who is helped by CCLG!Nicki Smith
