We are thrilled to announce the opening of bookings for the Charity Family Fun Run, an event for all ages and abilities in memory of our beloved daughter Millie, on what would have been her 15th birthday.

 

The run will take place on the 13 May, so we hope you are ready to dust off those trainers and join us for a fantastic day of fun and fundraising.

Supported by YorkMix and sponsored by Harrowells Solicitors, the event also marks the one-year anniversary of The Millie Wright Children's Charity. The charity was founded in memory of Millie and is based at Leeds Children's Hospital, where we work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of children in need.

The fun run will start from Poppleton Green, and we ask all runners to collect their runner numbers at 9 am for a 10 am start. To book your tickets priced at £12 for the 5k, £40 for 2 adults and 2 children or £20 for the 10k (18 and over only) and find out more information about the run, please follow the link. There is also a booking fee per ticket.

After the run, we invite you to join us at The Lord Collingwood, where musical acts JRlive and The Naked Eye will be playing live music from 12 pm. It's a fantastic opportunity to relax, socialize, and celebrate a successful day.

Don't miss out on this incredible event and join us for a fun-filled day with your family and friends. Let's create change together! #familyfunrun #charity #creatingchange

The Millie Wright Children's Charity have been advocating for parents to be fed in hospital since being founded in 2022. They've been addressing this need via their Saturday Suppers initiative and by stocking the parent's kitchens on as many wards as possible.

 

The Millie Wright Children's Charity supports Sophie's Legacy in the South of England and is proud to advocate and spread the message in the North.

 

Ceri and Charlotte are aligned and passionate that change needs to happen for parents to access food when in hospital.

What people are saying:

"We've just come back from L50 and, honestly, we were so taken aback that people are sponsoring pizza night for parents like ourselves - going through different circumstances. It certainly cheered-up our Saturday nights whilst staying. Thank you. You are truly amazing and what you do is just wow."
