Michelle sadly lost her baby daughter, Lara, in November of last year, and ran the 2016 Virgin London Marathon for Baby Lifeline as a way of doing something positive to help other babies and maternity units. She raised an incredible £7,063.88 with the support of her school colleagues and children at Ashton Park School, which has bought an important piece of equipment for North Bristol NHS Trust.
Michelle wanted to do something positive in memory of Lara:
“The staff on the nicu unit were amazing and it is crucial that their knowledge is kept up to date. I wanted to do something positive that would help other babies both in maternity wards and neonatal intensive care units as well as giving myself a challenge. Running the London Marathon for Baby Lifeline was the ideal way to do this.”
