Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields, being cheered on all the way by huge crowds! I would like a guaranteed place: We would love for you to join team Kicks Count. If you choose to use one of our guaranteed places, you'll be taking on a fantastic personal challenge. To secure your place, we simply ask for your commitment to raise £350 to help us save babies lives. £350 is an incredible amount of money for a small charity - we could supply eight maternity waiting rooms with an awareness-raising banner or provide 17 families with a parents and sibling bundle via our Finding a Rainbow Project. There is no registration fee until 21st April when £30 will be payable to secure a place. In return for your fantastic support, we will support you every step of the way - to get you to your fundraising target, and across the finish line.

Use your place to save babies lives: CONTACT US Last year I took on the Great North Run; it was a fantastic personal achievement. In 2011, my husband and I went to our local MRU with reduced movements and were told that our little boy hadn't made it. It was the most devastating day of my life and a memory that will never go away no matter how much time passes. During my pregnancy I'd not been aware of the importance of monitoring movements. It was my first pregnancy and the prospect of losing my baby after the first 12 weeks wasn't even considered. It was during the time after Joshua's birth I came across Kicks Count and the important work that they do providing information to mums-to-be - Gillian Sorry, this event is now sold out.
