2.6 Challenge - The Hare Family raise £245 on a treadmill

As part of the 2.6 Challenge Amanda, Will, Ellé, Ben & Delphi covered the distance of the London marathon on their home treadmill running and walking (for little legs and muscles) 26.2 miles to help support the ITP Support Association, although, it is hoped, the Marathon will go ahead later this year, charities such as the ITP Support Association rely on donations to keep up the great support, and care they provide to patients and families affected. The Hare family raised an impressive £245 (£303.75 with Gift Aid). Many thanks from everyone at the ITP Support Association.

Lexy Monks and friends

Back in October 2017, Lexy Monks and friends ran in the Manchester 10km Rough Runner to raise money for the ITP Support Association (Lexy's Mum has ITP). The run coincided with Storm Brian hitting the UK, hence the rather muddy conditions in the photograph. Despite the weather Lexy and friends completed the course and smashed their fundraising target (£150) by raising an incredable £485.20. Well done Lexy and Friends.

Ross Olney and friends

Ross Olney raised £676 from a 100km cycle ride with the help of Lea Barn Stables in Wexham, followed by a cake and coffee sale. Ross told us that this was the first time he had organised such an event, and the ITP Support Association was his chosen charity as we had helped his parents through a tough time in 2016 when his father was diagnosed with ITP. Sadly, due to further complications, his Dad passed away at the end of November last year.
