Stick ‘n’ Step supporters are donning their hiking boots to take part in the National 3 Peaks Challenge, to raise essential funds to support the cerebral palsy charity.
This latest fundraising venture will assist Stick ‘n’ Step to continue to provide essential support for children and young people with cerebral palsy through the provision of free weekly conductive education sessions at its specialist centres in Wallasey and Runcorn.
One such child is Heidi, who has been attending Stick ‘n’ Step centres for the last ten years. Her parents, Hayden and Kirsty, have supported Stick ‘n’ Step throughout this time by taking part in many charitable fundraising challenges. Hayden has run several 10k races, and has also recently taken part with Heidi in the 15mile Wirral Coastal walk.
From Saturday 4 September to Sunday 5 September, Hayden and 13 of his friends and supporters of the charity from across Liverpool and Runcorn will be taking on the challenge of the three peaks for Stick ‘n’ Step. This will involve climbing Ben Nevis, followed by Scafell Pike, and finishing with Snowdon by Sunday evening.
The team is aiming to raise over £5,000 for Stick’ n’ Step, and kind donations to the charity can be made via Hayden’s Just Giving link here: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/hayden-waite2
My daughter Heidi is 13 and has attended Stick ‘n’ Step since she was three years old. The support that the charity has offered to Heidi and the family has been fantastic and we have seen a real increase in her confidence and her ability to be more mobile and independent. I am taking on this challenge so that more money can be raised to help more children and families like ours that live with cerebral palsy.Heidi’s dad Hayden
