Silsoe Odours Marketing Manager Competes in Charity Run for GOSH
(Update: 7th May 2019)
Huge congratulations and well done to Joanna and all the #SuperheroesForMax runners! As you can see, the team turned out in style this bank holiday Monday. Each and every little superhero ran brilliantly well. Together they have raised nearly £2,000 to date. This will go to the incredible oncology play team at Great Ormond Street Hospital. It will help them continue their hugely valuable work with patients and their families.
Why Run For Great Ormond Street Hospital?
Every day, 618 children and young people from across the UK arrive at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Last year, that included four-year old Max. He was suffering from a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer called malignant rhabdomyosarcoma.
Thankfully, Max has now received the all-clear. He is a bundle of energy and doesn’t let anything back! He has now started reception year at school with his friends, albeit a few months later than the rest of them.
Our Marketing Manager, Joanna Hanley, is enormously proud to help support Max in his efforts to give back to GOSH. Read on to find out what #SuperheroesForMax will be getting up to.
Max lives in Silsoe, where (funnily enough) Silsoe Odours is based. He goes to school with Joanna’s son, Connor.
Max, Connor and their schoolmates Charlie and Scarlett-Rose, will don superhero costumes to run the Superhero Fun Run in Milton Keynes, on Monday 6th May. They also roped in their younger sisters, Mums and Dads.
Together, team #SuperheroesForMax will raise money to support the play workers at GOSH. During the course of Max’s treatment, the play workers were a lifeline for him and his family.
