Why you are running for Sands?

I am running for Sands in memory of my nephew, George, who was tragically stillborn in May 2015. Sands provided my sister and brother-in-law with help and support at this time continue to do so. None of us will ever forget George and I feel that raising money for this brilliant charity is a great way to honour his memory.
