We are celebrating after one of our dads completed the Chester 10k and smashed his fundraising target at the same time.

Martyn Gilmore, from Bebington, father of Alex, aged 3, raised over £800 running the Chester 10k last weekend. Alex, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when he was 9 months old, attends conductive education sessions at our Wallasey centre. Alex is now 3 and, according to his dad, is walking, running and jumping, supported by Stick ‘n’ Step every step of the way. Martyn says his son looks forward to attending our weekly sessions, which have had a huge impact on Alex’s life.

Next month, another of our dads, Rob Hayward, is taking part in the London Marathon. Rob’s daughter Sophie, aged 5, also attends Stick ‘n’ Step, going to weekly classes at the Runcorn centre. Rob, who lives in Holmes Chapel, has raised a fantastic £1350 so far. Rob will be accompanied running the Marathon by his colleague and friend Mark Sakar, from Stockton Heath, Warrington, who has raised over £1180 so far.

Rob says,

My daughter Sophie attends Stick ‘n’ Step and I’ve seen first-hand how valuable their work is. They help and encourage her to develop new skills and she has lots of fun and meets new friends along the way. Stick ‘n’ Step don’t receive any government funding and rely on donations from supporters. I’m raising money so they can continue their amazing work helping children with cerebral palsy.
