Take on Challenge 14 by completing 14 miles, taking on 14 new activities or completing your own challenge in 14 days 

Sadly, the death of a baby is not rare. Every day in the UK, 14 babies die before, during or shortly after birth, leaving 14 families heartbroken and empty handed as they leave hospital. For many, the cause of death is tragically unknown.  

At Sands, we want to change this. We believe research can save babies’ lives and improve care and support for bereaved families. 

Two years ago, we were asking you to take on Challenge 15. Amazing fundraisers like you helped us to reduce this number. But 14 babies are still dying every day and we need to continue our crucial work to reduce this number.  

Take on Challenge 14 in memory of these precious and wanted babies, and together we can create a world where fewer babies die.

  • Do 14 press ups, sit ups and squats every day for January
