We're calling on you - whether you're a seasoned runner or a newbie for the New Year. Can you help us save babies' lives in 2020 by taking part in our virtual challenge event?

Every penny supports our mission to prevent babies' being stillborn. 


HOW DOES IT WORK?

As this is a virtual event, you can complete your challenge anywhere you like! 

WHY TAKE PART?

In 2018, the latest published statistics, 2,689 babies were stillborn in the UK. The number of babies dying is slowly decreasing and that's the lowest number since records began. Though, there are still more lives to save - we don't think that number is acceptable. If you don't either, your support is vital.

Why is raising awareness of baby movement so important?

Around half of the mothers who had a stillbirth noticed their baby slowed their movements beforehand. If a baby is getting less nutrients or oxygen, they often move less to conserve energy. Most of the time, a baby moving less is found to be absolutely fine, but it's vital that mums recognise and report the potential warning sign. That's where we come in.


DO I HAVE TO RAISE MONEY OR CAN I JUST ENTER?

We're asking that all participants pledge to raise just £25 each. We know that huge fundraising targets can be off-putting and unachievable - £25 is not only realistic but it will make a difference.

YOUR £25 CAN:

  • Keep our free-for-mums pregnancy app running for at least two days.
  • Produce 500 flyers to educate parents on the dangers of home dopplers.
  • Provide a gift bundle to 3 families who are expecting following a previous stillbirth or neonatal death.

We promise it's not going to be paying any six-figure salaries, we'll put it to good use. If you're interested, take a look at our Ethical Fundraising Policy

It's simple to set-up a fundraising page right here on our website. Don't forget to select that you are taking part in the New Year, New Medal? event. Please book your place on the event BEFORE setting up your fundraising page.
